The Cavalier’s Lament

They were good days

The servants were loyal

And I looked after them

Perhaps I was remiss

In seducing the house maids

And smacking their bottoms

Bu I am not a tyrant

Horses are my passion

I ride well in the hunt

and I am a good shot

When challenged to a duel

I might kill

But ever averse to provoke

I never apologise

or renege on a bet

Everywhere esteemed

But now I am imprisoned

My comments on the book

of John Knox

“The Blast of the Trumpet

Against the Monstrous

Regiment of Women”

Was a big mistake

The Queen is not amused

Perhaps I should apologise

To be forgiven

And return home

To my horses

and loyal servants
