"They" say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Few are involved here, or maybe they are... and the moral of the story is?
Good king Henry, in his glory,
Surely screwed the people well.
He was sentencing a Mary
When along came H.G. Wells.
That's when foetid inspiration
Sparked within king Henry's soul,
"Go through time in every nation
Until tyrants fill my halls!"
He brought Calligula and Katherine,
Ivan, Qin, and Benito,
Adolf came and Alexander;
Making Henry twitch and glow.
Herod shut the door behind them,
All in good king Henry's hall.
H.G. Wells was guest of honor then
At Henry's "Ball of Balls."
Gengis ran along the rooftop
Coronating all the vermin
It seemed that in their company
He felt a little bit more certain.
He called upon king dysentary,
The queen of blisters and bade them well.
They suffered all in Henry's hall
And locked us in a timeless hell.
Phoenix Gengis belches forth
On a palamino locust.
Touches down near Henry's corpse
Wedged between the "Golden Arches."
