Heere Bigynneth the Tale of the Asse-Hatte



An Archbishop of Canterbury Tale

With apologies to Geoffrey Chaucer




25  Sayeth the pilgryms to Bishop Rowan,

26  "Father, we do not like howe thynges are goin'.

27  You know we are as Lefte as thee,

28  But of layte have beyn chaunced to see

29  From Edinburgh to London-towne

30  The Musslemans in burnoose gowne

31  Who beat theyr ownselfs with theyr knyves

32  Than goon home and beat theyr wyves

33  And slaye theyr daughtyrs in honour killlynge

34  Howe do we stoppe the bloode fromme spillynge?"


Get the rest from the brilliant IOWAHAWK!
