The Princes of the Dark Ages At The Seaside (Part One)
The warband has stopped off from its ravaging
and gone to the beach for the day.
They have forgotten their swimming costumes
and don’t own a beach ball between them.
One or two of the warriors ruefully
inspect the shingle gradient,
sizing it up as a perfect landing spot
for landing longships as a prelude
to away day pillaging.
The chips from the fast food kiosks
are popular with Ivarr the Grim
and Sebastian Wolf Loader.
Herefrodd the Unkind
disdains the candy floss.
