Vee and Me

I think that I shall never see
A sight less lovely than the V;
A letter troublesome to me
Because I lack an I… A… E…
Always I quickly throw it,
But wouldn’t you just know it
Back it comes to bother me.

I know that V spells victory,
Quote Caesar: “Veni, Vidi, Vici.”
But that great man, you will agree
Was done to death most viciously.

But stop this nonsense — now I see
A lane has opened up for me,
A play that fits in perfectly!
I give a shout, I bingo out
VICEROY gives me victory!!
