For us and for our tragedy
Here stooping to your clemency
We beg your hearing patiently.
Here Bushlet, Prince of Texas, and his Sire
King George the 1st (who ruled the kingdom prior),
And here the Lady Barbara, his Queen,
And here viziers, who serve, though seldom seen:
Sir Cheney, Duke of Halliburton. Here,
Sir Rummy, Earl of Rumsfeld, and their peer,
who held the ear of kings, Sir Henry, Earl
Of Kissinger. And here the Kingdom’s pearl,
Lord General Colin, our most Noble Moor.
And friend, Horatio, of heart so pure.
And here, vizier with much admired advice,
The Lady Candy, Contessa of Rice.
This, Dog to Bushlet, Blair, doth round our cast,
Save for one, and here we have the last:
Young Fought-in-bras, a general, brave and bold.
Our tragedy, my Lords, doth now unfold...
