In an effort to spread life, I offer a song that I wrote a few
years ago whilst trying to curry favor with a certain King
(whose name escapes me at the moment).  Unfortunately, I based
the song on my childhood memory of "Men of Harlech", which I 
taught myself without knowing ":|" or "dal segno"; therefore,
my song lacks a second verse.

 Many roles has Rhys of Harlech.
 He does not have time to frolic.
 He must be a workaholic
 At all this at once:

 First, a royal squire,
 Then, a royal choir,
 Then, anon, the King's champyon,
 And yet did he continue to strive higher!

 Now he dwells within the palace
 As ou-r new _Rex_Orientalis_.
 How didst thou accomplish all this
 In just forty months?

-- Alfredo el Bufon
You're first,
I'm last;
Your thirst
I'm asked
To justify.
