THERE once was a Nordic Dictator,
Who tried to embrace the equator,
But England said, ‘Please,
Be gentle, don’t squeeze;
Let’s pretend you’re a Pacificator.'
There once was a Latin Dictator,
Who liked to be called Imperator;
He insisted Utopia
Spelled Ethiopia,
But the Brenner has proved his deflator.
There once was a Slavic Dictator,
Who could n’t tell Comrade from Traitor;
He invented the Stunt
Of the United Front,
And his purge has rubbed out the Creator.
