The Hairie Queene

or Glory! Glory! Glory! Long Live Monarchy! The pedigreed Queen Shih Tzu shining sits Upon her throne attended by court fools, All privy chamberers arrayed in glitz Who train Her Highness with the privy stools; Their business being to obey these rules All privy hours of each day and night Should "Hairiana" crowned in privy jewels Command the stools to serve her appetite: To be but not unblessed should "Good Shihtz" bite; To be but not unpressed should "Sweet Shihtz" champ; To be but not undressed should "Shihtzy" tight But ever on the privy parts here clamp; To keep but ever stiff the upper lip-- Should sharply Shihtzy shihtzu-faced parts rip. January 12, 2022 Sonnet (English) (Spenserian)
