    The Profit


    Rumpelstiltskin

    spinning

    gold from straw.

    Three timely offers,

    and Queenly saving,

    against the challenge of his naming

    filling up Majestic coffers,

    only to be stalled in his claiming,

    dudgeon marked in a foot clove floor.

    What do you think

    the Tax Man saw?

    A child as stake

    on the odds of winning

    or profit from illegal gambling.

    ‘If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,’ Interesting challenge at the end of your poem, Johntee!
