My Favourite Kings

With thanks to John Morris, who proposed the idea in the first place.

George 6 of Windsor whose diction was shaky,
also the Cobra who’s majestically snaky,
& Harald Bluetooth who gave out some rings…
these are a few of my favourite kings!

Poor Menelaus so cruelly cuckolded,
Then also Aegeus who at black sails, folded
Herod who tried to drown infants in springs…
these are a few of my favourite kings!

Biblical David who toppled a giant,
Mongkut who preferred his women compliant,
Baldwin and the leprosy that he brings…
These are few of my favourite kings!

When the vote bites
When policy stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite kings
And representation doesn’t seem…so…bad!
