    Game of Thrones

    Corruption and deformity
    must haunt the major dynasty:
    a scheming witch, licentious imp,
    a severed hand, sadistic prince;
    suggestions of incest, perhaps,
    and Charles Dance wearing gravitas.

    Let there be dragons far beyond
    commanded by a fiery blonde,
    whose husband looks like Genghis Khan -
    though she might be a lesbian.
    That head he’s skewered on his knife
    once played a gay bloke in This Life.

    Intrigue shall occupy the court
    and many parts must needs be short –
    just long enough to lose their eyes,
    their limbs or what’s between the thighs.
    The chief amongst the hangers-on
    resembles Peter Mandelson.

    Have something horrible up North
    that’s threatening to lumber forth
    and overcome a wall of ice,
    to frit us with its fearsome voice.
    The widows weep, the virgins scream –
    I shall not visit Aberdeen.

    Procure a score of odalisques
    for ornament, to flash their tits
    and give a soldier some respite -
    but hang on, love, that can’t be right.
    Look, she’s had a Brazilian!
    The Dark Ages are brilliant.

    Such energy this bristled with. Flow was humorous mixing different elements of style which was crisp and sometimes melting Lovely rhymes, thanks for sharing, and welcome, To the Zone...

      Very enjoyable. I especially liked the references to Peter Mandelson and Aberdeen - sadly not so familiar to those outside the U.K (lucky them) but brilliantly observed. I shall never be able to look at little-finger again the same way.
