Saint George W.
A Mummers Play
Adapted and Illustrated by William L. Brown
Act II: One Dragon and One Less Saint
In comes I again, Little Devil Doubt,
In comes we, the Supreme Dragon,
Yes, I have a riddle, I will tell it unto thee,
Oh, easy-peasey, that's not hard,
comes I, Saint Al, behold this . . .
Ummm! Delicious, a bit like ham,
In comes I, St George,
Disgusting! Dry and hard!
Gadzooks, Dragon, you've gone awry,
Oh, poor St Al, how cruelly wronged,
Here stands I, Saint George the Uniter!
Well, that's dispatched, that weren't rough,
[Little Dick enters]
This here's my Little Dick Cheney,
In comes I, Miss Mandate O'deVoters,
Hello, Missy! What a charmer!
Oh! Turkey Bill, now THERE'S a man!
Oh, please come closer, I'll not offend,
In your ear? Up your chute!
My heart doth thud, my tongue doth loll!
With a tip of the hat to Elizabeth Thornton, Peter Austin, and their Quailhill 12th Night Mummer's Play for the multi-headed dragon concept and lines.
