Throwing a love-epee

Take that!

As I pass then parry with haste

You may be much bigger

but your size is a waste.


Take that and twice more

As I parry with plume

You’ll never defeat me

you say with a boom.


And back you swine!

I assert with a lunge

And back, and back,

away you vile gunge.


Mal-parry and I wince

His line it fell true

Redoublement be damned

I had the best of you.


I press and reprise

My fight is anew

I feinte, you fleche

my riposte naught to you.


You thrust and I fall

feint heart wins again

The measure too much

This love fought in vein

Clever the way you have woven the fencing terms into this love-spat themed piece Michelle, and you still have sabre and foil to play with too.
