Another Limerick

So when Aeschylus guided his Pen

Or whatever they used way back Then,

All the choir was Aquiver

For the man could Deliver

Which who did which what which way When.

Whose name was a sort of misnomer,

For he wandered the land

With a full backup band

Billed as Homer the Attican Roamer.
