923,945 poems read


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.
