Summary:

This is a subset of the second collection of Gilbert's "Bab Ballads" - light verses poking fun at the life and people of his time in Gilbert's unique "topsy-turvey" style. The epitaph on his memorial on the Victoria Embankment in London is "HIS FOE WAS FOLLY AND HIS WEAPON WIT", an epitaph amply exemplified in these verses. (Summary by Graham Redman)
