Ian McShanes Legs

entry picture

Having never been up close and personal with a man over the age of fifty;

I had no idea that nature

Takes all that’s nifty

From a mans legs

And gives nothing much back in return.


It was shocking to me when watching Pillars of the Earth

While sat eating a chinese, as you do,

To see the complete dearth

Of muscle and prowess

Contained in the legs of the aforementioned icon.


For his frame, they seemed ever so spindly and weak

Something akin to pipe-cleaners.

He was wearing a skirt, so to speak -

On account of his part in the show as the ‘Bishop’

A role he played well, until his timely fall.

This poem is about the impermanence of all things. Perhaps you didn't look deeply enough into it Mr Dowd. By the way, why have your comments been removed?
