The Princess Bride (Movie Mania Prompt)

Right2Write Prompt 2: Movie Mania from HowAnxious

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

unfortunate engagement

to Prince Humperdink


pirates, murder plots

kidnapping  and screaming eel-

infested waters


Andre the Giant

has huge addiction to rhymes

offering peanuts


Dread Pirate Roberts

scales Cliffs of Insanity

chit chat and swordplay


Mandy Patinkin

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



fireswamp dangers

lightning sand and rodents of

unusual size


the Pit of Despair

Rugen’s torture contraption

can’t trump True Love’s Kiss


Watch it or not “As you wish…”
