THE SIEGE OF DJKXPRWBZ, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Before a turkish town
Last Line: Consonant they had.
Alternate Author Name(s): Ironquill
Subject(s): Russia; Turkey; War; Soviet Union; Russians

BEFORE a Turkish town
The Russians came.
And with huge cannon
Did bombard the same.

They got up close
And rained fat bombshells down,
And blew out every
Vowel in the town.

And then the Turks,
Becoming somewhat sad,
Surrendered every
Consonant they had.
