Three Double-Dactyls

I.

Higgledy piggledy
Roger de Coverley
Fonder of hoofing it
Than of romance

Found himself typified
Characteristically
King of the Reels and the
Lord of the Dance.  

II.

Willety wallety
William the Conqueror
Wanted his subjects to
Quail at his power,

Crowing to Londoners
Hyperdespotically, 
“Look, everybody, I’ve
Built me a tower!”

III. 

Rickety tickety
Wolfram von Eschenbach
Sought for a subject to
Fashion a tale;

Tiring of writing so
Eschatologically,	
Rather, he turned to the
Quest of the Grail.
