William Topaz McGonagall

The best worst poet _ever_, his crowning glory being the ode to the Tay Bridge Disaster.


Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay!

Alas! I am very sorry to say

That ninety lives have been taken away

On the last Sabbath day of 1879,

Which will be remember'd for a very long time.


Also, JK Rowling, who spent way too much time in this kirkyard, named another character after McGonagall.
