The Lady Jane

Would you wish to be the Lady Jane?

At risk of being murdered if she fails

In truth she had a short and trying reign

Her tears fell down like clouds of steady rain

When Mary Tudor caused a fearsome gale

Would you wish to be the Lady Jane?

Her emotions hurt an agile but strange brain

As the Queen she had been sometime hailed

In truth she had a short and startling reign

She was valued less than turgid drains

There are no photos but her face was pale

0h,would you have liked to meet the Lady Jane

She should not have married Guildford in disdain

Better to await the holy grail

She had an almost non-existent reign

They did not let you from the Tower on bail.

Nor provide a boat in which to sail

They made the Lady Jane into a clown.

How much further could you travel down ?
