2nd Viscount Rochford (Poem)

image

Names fill thy mind, as they do on a page.
All these beautiful women around me, it’s hard for my eyes to not stray.
My appetite is strong.
Just like any woman or man.
For God has blessed us with these creatures, it should not be wrong.

Men call me too proud.
Women say I’m too charming.
Do not be afraid dear, I’m not that alarming.
I may be too proud.
I may be too witty.
But I take my vows seriously.

My sister is strong.
As well am I.
But here on this day, it’s time that I die.
For all of those I’ve offended.
I would like to say one thing.
I am sorry.
