Still Funny

praise now, praise, praise
the abbot's command

Fair one, if you were a nun
in our house,
to the profit of all the monks
you would take tribute.
But you shall not pass a day, fair one,
except on your back,
so the abbot says.

Oh! I love it!

Did I tell you about the Song of Nothing? I'll share sometime.
Not as rude, but same era and stuff.
Could do nicely to music some day...nugde nudge...
