Commissioned by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I upon hearing of the unfortunate llamanapping of Steve the Llama at the 26th annual Renaissance Autumn Festival on Saturday. A sonnet by Christopher Marlow’s brother, Bart!
Ode to Steve, the Llama
O Steve, who on Sir Drake’s broad hat did sit,
Though small in size and silent on thy perch,
Methinks thou droll and full of fluffy wit.
O that we could for Drakes companion search,
we would the whole of Wilson Park so scour
In search of Steve who has been llamanapped.
Why hast thou gone? Return this very hour!
So that thou on Drake’s head again be capped
Our kingdom weeps for now we are bereft,
O fuzzy llama thou art truly gone!
To some Italian scoundrel thou hast left
And now thy time with Captain Drake is done.
We only hope that Drake would deem her cute
So that O Steve, thy home may deign to suit!
