  1. Awesome challenge! I hope my words please you, my queen.

    Drifting through the family mob,
    avoiding questions about my job.
    My relations won't back down.
    I hate telling them I'm a circus clown.

  2. Argh! Poetry!

    Playing antics for the queen.
    But what a dangerous biz it's said.
    The final line in this scene:
    Off with your head and then you're dead!

  3. I can never resist a poetry challenge... Especially when there are limerick opportunities. :-)

    A queen on a throne made of wood,
    Ruled the kingdoms as best as she could,
    She contracted a cough, and could no longer laugh,
    And took tea like the wisest queen would.

  4. But once I spied a maiden fair, with ebon locks and belt of gold,
    and long I did for one dark hair, to plait unto a ring - but bold
    'twould be for me to plead for royal womanhood's sweet inky strand
    and so instead I am a loyal poet and for her I stand.

  5. A queen now with a crown of tawny hair
    And your eyes so wise and deep
    But once you were my little princess fair
    When as I child I tucked you in to sleep.


  6. The queen is green in garments so fair
    Such luscious lips and lovely long hair
    To ask for a date would give her a scare
    For I'm tall and hairy just like a bear.

  7. Alas, I am late to these here games.
    I have been away, in weather fair and foul.
    But I would kneel before her, all the same,
    To behold those emerald eyes set in that beautiful brow.
