A Light-hearted Take on King Henry VIII

Today for her English, Emily had to write a poem - either funny or serious. Discussion ensued on what she could write about. Bethany was in the middle of a report on King Henry VIII's wives, so I suggested Emily write a limerick about him.

This is what she came up with:

Henry's Wives

by Emily

Two of the wives of Henry the VIII

Had a very fatal fate (beheading)

Two of them were forced,

at the King's command to be divorced.

Then one had died,

and one survived,

and that was the end of the wives.

~ all because he wanted an heir!

Silly Henry!
