Bernard Montgomery,
Sent to North Africa,
Rallied his troops with the
Confident boast:

"With our numerical
Superiority,
We can win easily.
Rommel is toast!"

Pontifex Maximus,
Holy Pope Francis was
Chosen divinely as
Bishop of Rome.

He will deliver some
Deontological
Guidance in tracts from his
Vatican home.



Judas Iscariot
Needed some cash, so he
Vilely betrayed the Lord
Jesus, we're told.

Sadly, such greed is an
Anthropological
Trait - we are tempted by
Silver and gold.

Russell and Whitehead, the
Mathematicians,

Encompassing feat.

Then came Kurt Gödel, who

Showed that their treatise must
Be incomplete.

Ludwig van Beethoven,
Writing a violin
Part in a symphony,
Put a low F.

When he was told of its
Unplayability,
He was ashamed and said:
"Sorry, I'm deaf".
