SIR THOMAS, TELL US MORE!
I really do hope ya'
Have read Tom More's "Utopia."
It's about a place you'll never find;
It only existed in the mind.
Speaking of which,
Sir T.M. filled an important niche
In experimental science
Of the mind
By stubborn defiance
To which he was inclined:
Theologians studied assiduously
The mind/brain dichotomy
When Thomas, because he thought wrong religiously,
Was given a lopsided lobotomy.
MAY WE NAME VIRGINIA AFTER YOU?
Of all possible lovers, Elizabeth the First
Was the worst...
That is information that one detractor,
The Royal Chiropractor,
One day before he died.
We assume it's a rumor we can expurgate,
Since Liz was the daughter of Henry the Eighth!
To put it historically,
She was meringue on
She was a prick
In the Catholic
(She also jump-started the British Empire
And taught the natives, one by one,
To greatly admire
The English tongue.)
Liz had a strong ego, but also an id:
From the time that she was a kid
No man successfully wooed her:
She was England's hired Tudor.
