Tale of Woe (Minifigure Monday)

Minifigure Monday is a weekly celebration of LEGO® characters through art. This week, a tale of woe inspired by pirates. While pirate week was last week, today’s post was also inspired by Pirates of Barracuda Bay (click here to read about it). I can’t help it, I love that set and it has inspired many posts over the last week. This particular one came about when I was photographing for my piece comparing old and new pirates LEGO® pieces (click here to read it).

Tale of Woe

An original LEGO® inspired poem from True North Bricks.

I will write here, before I go,
My sad and twisted tale of woe.
I trusted someone with my fate,
And willingly stepped through the gate.
But when I knew I had been tricked,
The lock already had been clicked.
All rhyme and reason I ignored,
In rage I lashed out with my sword.
Then through the bars my sword did jut,
Like butter it slipped through his gut.
He stumbled backwards and then fell,
But I was still locked in my cell.
His deathly grasp still held the key,
Though just a bit too far from me.
Except the body on the ground,
It seems there’s no one else around.
I sit here all alone and cry,
As in this cage I’ll surely die.

A tale of woe.
A tale of woe.
