Ode To The 2nd Earl Of Rochester.
They said he was a Libertine
John Wilmot was his name
No sex was safe or in between
He had no sense of shame
  
The second Earl as he was known
For King Charles an eager friend
His wit he wrote about the throne
As was the courtly trend
 
Actor, Poet, Gadavant
His life was full of tricks
He wrote of dildo's stuffed in pants
And various others pricks
  
One day he over stepped the mark
To make King Charles a fool
Which really wasn't very smart
As Charles could be quite cruel
 
And so he fled the city life
Gave up the Merry Gang
To settle with a country wife
He had no wish to hang
 
He changed his name to Bendo
And as a Doctor plied his trade
But he couldn't change his ego
And chased after pretty maids
 
A hectic life you must agree
Most spent in sexual bliss
At the ripe old age of thirty three
He died of syphilis
 
 
Author's Notes:
Most widely known for his satirical works and his debauchery which supposedly started at the age of twelve and escalated he was also decorated for bravery at the Battle of Vagen in 1665,he married Elizabeth Malet but also had many mistresses including Elizabeth Barry who later became a famous actress after his tutoring, he became so ravaged by syphilis that he lost his nose and wore a silver plate to cover the hole and thick makeup to cover his skin.

I wonder if his later sexual partners enjoyed kissing a noseless face?
