English poet Hugh Chesterman (1884-1941), author of “King John,” which describes the events leading to King John’s granting of Magna Carta:
John was a tyrant, John was a tarter/ John put his name to the great big charter. /Every barron from Thames to Tweed, / Followed that road to Runnymead. / Every Barron had something to say/ To poor perplesed King John that day. / Pray sign your name, said Guy De Gaunt, / It’s easily done and it’s all we want, / A “J” and an “O” and an “H” and an “N”, / Said Hugo, Barron of Harpenden.
