An English Sonnet

By Samuel Marshall

Samuel Marshall

He can’t be beat he can’t be taken down;

He owns a fifty million dollar home;

He has pet tigers and a golden crown;

He is respected everywhere he roams;

 

The people celebrate this hero new;

They praise his generosity and might;

In his honor they craft a grand statue;

They tell his great stories to kids at night;

 

Foes run and flee before his lethal blade;

Courageous he sets forth to save the day;

He stands before the legions unafraid;

Bold champion of men he rides away;

 

He rises up to face a beast most cruel,

Turns off the game and packs his lunch for school;
