Lord Mortimer - Fish In Mouth- - Poem by Georgios Venetopoulos

Lord Mortimer! The fish you kept in mouth
became a symbol by rejected dames
the knights who scorned thy trout and blokes uncouth
to sword and javelin are challenged, games.

The fish that carefully defined your pride
to object turned of mockery and sneer;
Lord Gilbert who implied this apartheid
escorted, then, some playful Londoneer!

And in the gardens of Keats' house they walked
Lord Gilbert softly had recited verse
'bout cookie-cutter sharks that black sheep flocked
her aoristic feelings to coerce.

The dame advanced his brilliancy to heights
where verses hymned the longest lance joust fights.
