Rulers Of The World

With rare exceptions the rulers of the world have been men. But rulers are generally only 12 inches tall, with three rulers equal to a yard, some 3.36 inches short of a meter. Women, on the other hand, are usually a little taller than that.

Now take young Alexander
The Issus he did cross
We’re told ‘twas no one grander
Yet missus was the boss
Napoleon he conquered
All Europe ‘cept the Brits
In Russia he got bonkered
And Josephine had fits
Males do the heavy lifting
But females have their ways
The ground is always shifting
And has from ancient days
When hunters crossed the prairies
And thought they ruled it all
A ruler’s length though varies
With most twelve inches tall
