The Unfortunate King of Annam! by W.T. Goodge

| No TrackBacks
They say he's taken many lives
   Of daughters and of mothers,
And that he's murdered thirty wives
   And killed and eaten others!
These stories may, of course, be true
   But still there's no denying
That women are (give him his due!)
   At times extremely trying!
