Nicely done, dxb. Here's another one for you. I tried to make it end with Victoria, but thought the rhyme would bore ya.

Victoria, queen of longest reign,
Traveled Britainís vast domain;
She perused,
Not at all amused.

Marilyn Manson:
Not what youíd call handsome,
But a master of manipulation,
Causing an unholy sensation.

Who is Marilyn Manson?
Is she somebodyís grandson?
Or am I happier in my ignorance,
Perchance?

Doctor Bill,
Just a tad over the hill;
Always on hand with a ref, a link, a remark or quotation:
Pillar of this organization.

No piller I
Seeking only in the sky

This is not original, but I like it too well to hold back:

Massenet
Never wrote a Mass in A.
It would have been just too bad
If he had.
