Coffeebean Jediďng
down to Old Catherine
taking the mind machine
Gracefully pardonning

Medici caught between
unfaith and onfaith of
Philip and Taciturn
endlessly bickering......

Jacqueline Kennedy,
Wife of the ill-fated
President, Jack:

She stood majestically,
Characteristically
Strong through her heartbreak
And never looked back.

Heineken Beineken
Old Samuel Adams was
Checking his private stock,
Looking for Bud.

Bottles were bad for his
Crystallophobia.
He cracked a can open--
Tasted like mud.

Boldly Mongolian
Hordeing old Genghis Khan
Swept through the Steppes “like
A Wolf on the Fold”

Mightily, Blightily
Quite genocidally
Reliev’d all the Slavs of
Their silver and gold

Meninov Leninov

Jan. ’17,

“I fear revolution
Will not be solution
In my lifetime: when, it
remains to be seen”

The Rev Ian Paisley, leader and founder of both the Independent Presbyterian Church and the Democratic Unionist Party in N. Ireland, has just retired from the Church at the age of (I think) 78. He retired from the political party aout 18 months ago. He was noted for his very loud voice and remarkably powerful sermons in his south Belfast chapel. This is to him ...


Lazily Aisily
The Reverend Paisley
Steps from his pulpit and
Makes his way out

Not any more will he
Declamatorily
Raise East Belfast with his
Shout from the South

Kerotsky Perlotsky
L.Bronstein (or Trotsky)
Fell out with Lenin
Before 1910,

Came back to the Bolshie fold
Talented manifold
And led the Red Guards to
Full victory.

(2nd stanza, 1st ine is unorthodox - but so was Trotsky!)

Heidelburg Hoodelburg
Albert Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha paid court to the
Young British Queen,

Married her, carried her
Then didn’t tarry here
After which she was rare-
Ly to be seen
