Wikipedia doesn't have a proper article about Great Poetry Riots of 1346. It really wouldn't help those so-called experts by writing one either.

The Great Poetry Riots of 1346 came as an even bigger shock to people than the Telephone Sanitation Riots of 3416, despite the fact that the latter hadn't happened yet.

The riots have been named in part after the people who took part in it, The Great Circling Poets of Arium. It so happened that there were 5 sage princes with 4 horses, and they argued about who had to walk back whilst circling innocent travellers. These besieged travellers could only defend themselves by spouting poetry at the princes. One such poetic weapon was recorded as:


There once was a prince in a castle

Who found meeting ladies a hassle

So he called his foole

Unencumbered his rule

And turned his foole into a vassal


A later adaptation of this event to the silver screen by Monty Python turned the whole thing upside down, with the sages becoming knights spouting fiendish questions at innocent travellers. According to the Lore of Pythonia a shrubbery with a white picket fence was an equally effective countermeasure to poetry, confusing the matter even further.

All that one can truly tell of the event is that it involved poetry at some point or other, and caused riots, sometime around the year 1346. The rest of the history was lost when a firefighter burned all references to the event, it was then found that the temperature at which poetry burns is Fahrenheit 451 degrees.
