Never Trust A Spaniard
October 30th, 2014 by Coral

Alright, first real item of business, this is a Sonnet I wrote a few years ago. It started as an assignment for my Shakespeare class, but then my dad challenged me to write a Sonnet that incorporated a specific phrase, and I took the idea and ran with it.  In essence, this is a character portrait in Sonnet form of a character from the movie “The Princes Bride.”

***

Hallo, I say, now listen to my rant!

a duel, I say! Now I will start to laugh!

Because I can know something that you can’t,

left handed, I am not, vict’ry I have!

My name’s Indigo and I have a sword,

my father was the man that you did kill.

Revenge, I swore, and I will keep my word,

for you will find that I do have great skill.

Six fingers on your hand do tell the tale,

Domingo Mantoya was my fathers name.

I swear upon his soul I will not fail,

and you defeat will bring me such great fame.

You, there, upon your balcony so high,

you killed my father! Now, prepare to die!

 

*****

 

Of course, if you can read this with the Spanish accent, like the one our beloved Indigo Mantoya has, it rhymes much better.
