Mission Unaccomplished

Form: Curtal Sonnet


A mission to England for the French King
To calm the rising of religious storm
The Pope said no, there’s the root of the thing
And Henry declared his church must reform
Against the odds, he made Anne his new queen
She’d give him his son, an heir to be seen
A daughter born, Anne had failed to perform
And od Henry kicked off another scene
Declaring his queen’s guilt, off with her head
As Henry brought in another new queen
