Princess Margaret

Margaret was the joker of the pack
Jesting with all who scraped and bowed
Asking artists if they were well hung
Fundraisers if they were well endowed

But it was at the General Synod
That Margaret pulled off her finest trick
Asking the Bishop of Bath and Wells
Whether he had a big bishopric
