Rob Researches His Ancestry

 

Rob Researches His Ancestry

 

By Elton Camp

 

His family’s stories filled Rob with glee

For few had ancestors as illustrious as he

 

The gratifying report he happily approved

A king was his grandfather a bit removed

 

Nothing could be more splendid

Than from royalty to be descended

 

At his claims, some folks would sneer

So he decided to make the facts clear

 

With the use of powerful Internet tools

He would shut the mouth of those fools

 

When the genealogy was all done

Gloating at them would be such fun

 

The final report in his hand he clasped

At what he learned, poor Rob gasped

 

Rob was as embarrassed as could be

There was no king in his family tree

 

The boastful family stories had been wrong

To a hangman’s descendants he did belong
