A Royal Household



Princess Slob

Ruled the mob

By throwing her food at them;

The queen she wept,

But the king just slept;

And dreamed of having

No children!


The Prince of Snob

(Slob's brother, Bob)

Turned up his nose to all;

And though the queen she tried

The king simply died,

Just so he wouldn't have to go

To the ball!







Colonel Timmy And Sergeant Shirl



Colonel Timmy and Sergeant Shirl,

They were dancing one day, and he gave her a twirl;

Arms outstretched, you'd have thought she might soar –

Instead she spun right down into the floor!

Head thrown back, full of glee –

There go her feet, there go her knees!

Her sparkling eyes, her teeth flashing white –

There go her shoulders, her head, out of sight!

And when Colonel Timmy saw what he'd done,

He wished and he wished she could be unspun;

But she couldn't – and so he ran home to bed,

And pulled up the covers, his face very red.
