THREE WORD WEDNESDAY
COLD DEPRAVED POWERFUL
Write something based on and including these three words.
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
