Henry VIII

Henry was an athlete king,
Crowned with gold upon his head,
Never lacking anything,
Wealth nor wives to grace his bed.

England shook at his command:
Even at his whim they must
Do the bidding of his hand...
But now he's sleeping in the dust.

Gone is all his royal pride
And his great pomposity.
Look--A spout sprouts from his side,
And he waits to serve us tea.

The crown has fallen from our head;
woe to us, for we have sinned!

--Lamentations 5:16

Thank you for your comment on my blog. That comment completely caught me off guard and I did not want to answer in haste.
