Here's one I've found for the monarchs of Britain.



Willie Willie Harry Stee
Harry Dick John Harry three;
One two three Neds, Richard two
Harrys four five six....then who?
Edwards four five, Dick the bad,
Harrys (twain), Ned six (the lad);
Mary, Bessie, James you ken,
Then Charlie, Charlie, James
again...
Will and Mary, Anna Gloria,
Georges four, Will four, Victoria;
Edward seven next, and then
Came George the fifth in nineteen
ten;
Ned the eighth soon abdicated
Then George six was coronated;
After which Elizabeth
And that's all folks until her
death.


Anything involving words I don't have a problem with, I found learing poems etc. in school easy. Wish I could say the same for numbers though! I'm now living at my fifth different address this year (it's a long story), and keep getting the phone numbers of all the different places completely jumbled up every time I'm asked for my current one!
