Richard The Third Disinterred

History has not heard the last

word on me, as might be said

by resurrected Richard Three.

Sullying a kingly order in snide

Southern rhyme for turd, damn

the hides of those dirty London

curs and hounds, vile peasants

whose unpleasantness knows

no bounds. Oh how theirs and

Mr Shakespeare's ignoble gibes

and slurs rebound upon them.

I am by God Richard the Third

raised new like a Phoenix bird,

do honour to the head that bore

the crown, restore a great Dick's

once proud Plantagenet renown

Simply ingenious non-end rhyming.

Nicely worked Frank. I nearly rolled over at those lines,

"damn the hides of those dirty London

curs and hounds, vile peasants

whose unpleasantness knows

no bounds."

Glad you mentioned Shakespeare.... Perhaps some of our scholars also, will now attempt to rewrite history. :biggrin:

Btw note "Phoenix". B.

cheers ben, there'll be a long due reappraisal I hope. I still love WS's "false" character assasination though, one of drama's great villains.

Thanks for the correction and calling it a typo, it was a spelling mistake! Frank
