I had this poem in my seventh grade english book, but i have never found it anywhere since. I remember bits and pieces, and couldn't find anything on the net. Anyone ever read this poem and remember all of it?

Okee Pokee Chinga ma ring
18th wife of the mighty king
loved her Lord above everything
and so she dressed him out for the party

satins and silks the queen did lack
but she had some red paint that looked well on black
so she painted her lord and masters back
and dressed him out for the party
Oka Poka crack me crown
King of the island Gulp-em-down

something like that

This article mentions it; maybe a starting point for further research.
