ramblings and things
She's known to the world as
A woman who killed her mates,
An accomplished poisoner
And one of history's hates.
But one of her inventions
Altered world history's course
‘tis said she invented knickers
For use when riding her horse.
Tired of ribald comments,
They rode commando in those days,
And rude glances and stares for
They were known for bawdy ways
So she put her mind to it
And invented her underwear
To give her some modesty
When she was perched up there
Anne Sommers be grateful.
She should have a special place.
Without her you wouldn't be selling
Those creations in nylon and lace.
She was only the Popes daughter
Said to be lascivious and lewd,
Forerunner of women's lib
A woman of attitude.
History regards her as infamous
Bawdy, naughty and sleazy
But before Lucretia came along
A woman's condition could be breezy.
All hail Lucretia Borgia,
A woman of style and taste
Who gave a woman warmth and
Modestly, there below the waist.
