Mark R Slaughter

Ignatius - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

To speak his entire appellation
Is an awfully cumbersome chore.
You'll need your full concentration –
And even a little bit more!

He's highly respected you see,
And dripping with medals galore;
Far more important than we –
Seen many a terrible war.

Remember to bow when you speak,
And try not to show you're vexatious;
Don't dribble or snigger or shriek,
Or sound just a tinsy audacious.

'Lord General Ignatius Horatius –
Honourable Iguana, His Gracious.
Blimey – you're so ostentatious!
Oops…now for something hellacious! '
