The Silly Young Duke

There was once upon a time
A great little estate in rhyme
Nestled there between the great peaks
Of the Abramennes and the Sinaidennes
An estate of extraordinary beauty
Owned by the Dukes of the Jacobinian Family
It was a source of great pride, the jewel in the crown
Father to son to son and on down
Surrounded by larger hostile landowners
Yet secure in her mountainous perch

Life was good on the Jacobinian estate

Until that day when it fell to
The silly young Duke Otto

Oh that fateful day

Poor Otto was seen wandering
The hills surrounding
The blessed land
That was his clans
But was now
being plundered
Oh Otto how
Have you blundered

With a shrug you exclaim
To the gate they came
Holding papers. Claims
Claimed that it belonged to them

Shaking him by his lapel
But but why didn’t you repel
Whats yours?

But, retorted the foolish duke in return
They had proof...
They had arguments
I don’t know

Silly Bloggers...
Defend whats yours
Who cares what others say?
Let them take their claims and proofs
And lay their own stake to the truth
We are secure
in our mountainous perch
The gates closed and secure..

wow!!!! that was great!!!!

unfortunately The silly duke is young innocent and not properly prepared to fight off all the schemes and swindle arguments he faces.

Thanks for your comment on this topic on my blog.

your poem completes it well.

David - seems to be the topic of choice. First mookie, then Nuch, now you...

Guess Purim really is greater than Yom Kippur. We're all getting into the introspection thing now...

Blogging is great as long as you keep it separate from your real life. When the twain meet, problems abound. So this Purim, I'll drink simultaneously to anonymity as well as to loose fingers.
