These Wordy Words are from: My Enemy the Queen

Riddle-Me Who?

This man had done bad
The Queen was so sad

“My favourite before
But now no more”

“Mercy!” Mom plead,
“Enough!” The Queen said,

Too pompous, too proud
Attracted wrong crowd

The Queen felt cheated
He must be defeated

Bess thought she had reason
So she tried him for Treason



  1. I have 3 of those words on my list ;) I always remember 'Prevarication' because Moose & Zee on Noggin (kid's channel) have a song that says 'Prevaricate' and my daughter asked me what it means.

    I know who the riddle is, but I'll let other's guess :)
