Limerick: Once the Middle Kingdom’s top Concubine

Once the Middle Kingdom’s top Concubine*
Said to rule China through love combine
Dallying generals: O! Dear!
Forced Emperor to fear:
Eunuch strangled her at Buddhist shrine.

*Emperor Xuanzong’s Consort and his daughter-in-law,
Yang Guifei, 719-756 C.E.
