The Princess Bride (Movie Mania Prompt)

Right2Write Prompt 2: Movie Mania from HowAnxious

forgive in advance

this sad, butchered retelling

watch it, I mean it!

¨

poster

¨

farm boy loves beauty

goes off in search of fortune

death most untimely

¨

grieving she enters

unfortunate engagement

to Prince Humperdink

¨

pirates, murder plots

kidnapping  and screaming eel-

infested waters

¨

Andre the Giant

has huge addiction to rhymes

offering peanuts

¨

Dread Pirate Roberts

scales Cliffs of Insanity

chit chat and swordplay

¨

Mandy Patinkin

as Inigo Montoya

is out for revenge

¨

a six-fingered man

must prepare himself to die

for his father’s death

¨

A battle of wits

Sicilian with Iocane

Inconceivable

¨

fireswamp dangers

lightning sand and rodents of

unusual size

¨

the Pit of Despair

Rugen’s torture contraption

can’t trump True Love’s Kiss

¨

Watch it or not “As you wish…”

¨
