Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition!

completely and entirely created by the Bard King himself

(voice-over)

It was the 6th of June, a Sunday, a day deemed Holy by many nuns. It was the year of our Lord, two-thousand and twenty-one.

SCENE 1: The Uninvited

There once was a poet, poetically uninvited,
Not tagged to play, a love you could say, most unrequited.
His rhymes were sung from silver tongue;
He flung true his kung fu and won,
Though some others preferred rhythm much more expedited.

SCENE 2: Enter the King

A champion did enter the ring
With songs upon songs for all to sing.
A master, for sure
Words cast so pure
All praised and hailed their brilliant Bard King!

SCENE 3: Hold the Applause

On bent knee did other contenders now bow,
Losing before choosing and not knowing how.
He rhymes for a living —
Thanks is for giving,
Should we just call it finished, right here and now?

SCENE 4: Full Circle

Now I find you at sweet imposition;
You’ve entered into battle with a verbal Magician.
What can I say
When not asked to play:
“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”

This was insanely fun. Thank you, everyone.

SHOUT-OUT/CALL OUT

Jupiter Grant: I thought we were tight. I got all your other invites but this one was out of sight. It’s alright, I found it sometime last night. Good fight. You did more than alright.

Michael Burg, MD (AKA Medium Michael Burg): Allow this to represent my pleasure in meeting you. I shan’t be offended that it’s me greeting you. This was a great idea for rhyming true, happy to play in future if you ever again do.

Peace. Love. Namaste.

I love to rhyme, often sensually. I have to write, otherwise insanity. I leave my heart on paper. Feel free to feel my feels. I comment lovingly and completely.
