Ian McShanes Legs
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.
