Henry VIII

The silly old man didn't learn,
despite a succession of wives,
he would bore very and quickly and turn,
and some of them paid with their lives.

'Off with their head,' he'd declare,
claiming this as a merciful act.
This tyrant had no real compare,
or respect for the marriage contract.

King Henry's sixth and last choice,
a twice married widow, Katherine Parr,
when the old rascal died, heard her voice,
skipping through the palace, 'Ha, ha, ha!'
