Poems for subscribers to What If The Queen Should Die?
After the manner of Alexander Pope
(who appears as a character in the novel),
but sincerely meant by JP Flintoff

To O.B.
We halted, muddled, made mistakes, felt stuck,
Defeated, slapped our brows, and prayed for luck:
Now willingly we flood to you, Octavius,
And you, with light and wit, enslavius.
Too long did Dullness squat on humankind,
Until you launched your Gym to tune the Mind.
