forgive in advance
this sad, butchered retelling
watch it, I mean it!
farm boy loves beauty
goes off in search of fortune
death most untimely
grieving she enters
to Prince Humperdink
pirates, murder plots
kidnapping and screaming eel-
Andre the Giant
has huge addiction to rhymes
Dread Pirate Roberts
scales Cliffs of Insanity
chit chat and swordplay
as Inigo Montoya
is out for revenge
a six-fingered man
must prepare himself to die
for his father’s death
A battle of wits
Sicilian with Iocane
lightning sand and rodents of
the Pit of Despair
Rugen’s torture contraption
can’t trump True Love’s Kiss
Watch it or not “As you wish…”

Lol such a perfect ending to the poem. Love the movie, love the retelling. 🙂
Thank you. I thought it came out a bit clunky.
guess I missed it but Patinkin and Sicilan peak my interest
It is from the 80’s and I would highly recommend it. So many great lines… I quote it often. 🙂
Love this poem and love The Princess Bride! EVERYONE should be required to watch this movie. Fun fact. . . I work at the University of Kansas, where Mandy Patinkin was a student. 🙂
Very cool! Ya know I’ve always loved The Princess Bride and I liked Mandy Patinkin in Criminal Minds but for some reason it took me awhile to figure out they were one and the same. AND do you know he sings too?
I know! He’s is so talented. I don’t think many people realize just how much. I love him in Dead Like Me. If you haven’t watched that tv series, you should. It’s on Netflix.
Never seen it but thanks for the recommendation!
Never seen it. Now I don’t have to bother.
Oh, that is to bad. I think you might enjoy it. 🙂
Inconceivable! My favorite movie of all time. A true classic. So many memorable scenes.
One of my favorite for sure. 🙂 The lines are gold.
My 2 kids love this movie too.
Fabulous ending love it!
i agree with others- what a great way to end! And of course a wow creation.. 🙂
Thank you so much for the great compliment!
