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
