Chaucer, the bawdy wit
And English pioneer,
Hath in his magnum opus writ
The slyest pun for rear!
The tail-end of the Miller’s song,
Verse offensive to the noblest ear,
The carnal phrase doth lie.
Tis that can never see but winks;
The bottom eye.
Composed by Martin Baena in March of 2013 upon completion of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales
