      RHYME TO REMEMBER THEM BY

      Willy, Willy, Harry, Ste,
      Harry, Dick, John, Harry three,
      One, two, three Neds, Richard two,
      Henries four, five, six - then who?
      Edwards four, five, Dick the bad,
      Harries twain and Ned the lad,
      Mary, Bessie, James the vain,
      Charlie, Charlie, James again,
      William & Mary, Anna Gloria,
      Four Georges, William and Victoria,
      Edward, George, then Ned the eighth
      quickly goes and abdicat'th,
      leaving George, then Liz the second,
      and with Charlie next it's reckoned.

      That's the way our monarchs lie
      since Harold got it in the eye!

      PS. Sorry, Lady Jane Grey - you got the chop!
