Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Never knew
His later worth.

For this reason
Ne’er forget
Both you and fate
May pass unmet.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Never knew
His date of birth
For his mother
Never told
And thus did Edgar
Not grow old.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Was not imagined
Colin Firth
His face in truth
Resembled steak
And thus no-one
Made that mistake.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Grew protuberant
In his girth
He ate so much
Yet moved so little
That standing still
Produced vast spittle.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Found in life
A sorry dearth
Of friends who would
Upon him sit
To let him thus
Engorge his bit.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Was thus cast down
With little mirth
He wrote of pain
Without a haven
The Tell-Tale Heart
Thus quoth The Raven.

Edgar Allan
Peace On Earth
Did never know
His later worth
And for that reason
Ne’er forget
That you and fate
May pass unmet.
