[ NB. this topic is for new RHYMING FANTASY POETRY ONLY. please see below for more details about the new rhymes i want to encourage here...]
A big man from a gloomy north land
did come fourth with a sword in his hand
he would have come third
but he slipped on a turd
and now cows in the stadium are banned!
The swamp creatures in southern Cimmeria
are all bigger and meaner and hairier
the Aquilonian spies
claim they kill with blue eyes
did the invaders all die of malaria?
A Stygian wizard of note
tried summoning armed with a goat
the demon called by chance
kissed the goat in a merry dance
then cut the wizard's flesh into a coat!
An ambitious young giant from the north
with broadsword in hand did come forth
he searched far for treasure
but just found buxom pleasure
on a mountain he bellowed his wrath.
An exotic young lady named Isis
was having a bit of a crisis
while giving a spank
she had broken her Ankh
so was having to put up her prices.
