The Multiply-To-Be-Dreaded Master Poet of Dundee

A poetical gem found within the pages of the 40 Bad books article.  I present for your delectation and delight:

The Poetry of William McGonagall

It must be read to be believed and so I present this excerpt from one poem within Poetic Gems.

from "Loch Leven"
William McGonagall

BEAUTIFUL Loch Leven, near by Kinross
For a good day's fishing the angler is seldom at a loss,
For the Loch it abounds with pike and trout,
Which can be had for the catching without any doubt;
And the scenery around it is most beautiful to be seen,
Especially the Castle, wherein was imprisoned Scotland's ill-starred Queen.

What more need be said on the matter?
