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?
