GENGHIS KHAN

by John Yeo

Cold, Depraved, and Powerful,

Yes! That would sum him up.

Genghis Khan ruler of the  Mongol empire

In the thirteenth century.

Lord of all he surveyed.

A powerful killer, bloodthirsty, fearless,

Responsible for the deaths of millions.

 ~

As cold as the ice age that preceded 

His rise and rise to ruthless power.

Depraved, he had his enemies slaughtered

Yet he loved as often as he rose to power

Fathering hundreds of children.

A chest full of jewels and red, red roses

To court the foreign princesses.

 ~

Princess Fatima who loved the Khan

Doting on his every whim, survived,

To stay with him always moving

Following the fighting.

Opposites attract as the saying goes.

Warm, Virtuous, and Gentle

She loved her cruel callous 

 ~

Cold, Depraved, Powerful

Genghis Khan

  1. “Genghis Khan’s many wives and his penchant for rape and pillage might have seen him sire hundreds or even thousands of children. According to a famous 2003 genetic study, around one in 200 living men carry a form of the Y chromosome that may have originated with the Great Khan himself. If true, that would mean that 0.5 percent of the world’s male population are his direct descendants.”
