Sangria

His hair stood shrinking beside his green bodice

What tired eyes he had

His name caused the halls to fill with seekers of solace

What big teeth he had

 

How nameless must fear be to cause hearts to stop

His every step dearly caused no hats to drop

Frozen in their drenched garments they waited to die

With the palpable fear they would stay frozen if he said ‘hi’

 

His emblem had burned whole kingdoms yesterday

And now he stood before peaceful trolls today

Why had he left his peaceful pillaging

To disturb this saintly place where rapists where gathering

 

If God forgives should man forget

If killed someone should words protect

From the fury of missing a relative gone

Or is it for peace and love to everyone
