Review Summary: Outrageously Original!!!

Chapter II: A Leap of Improvement

I have to say, I wasn't expecting for such an amazing aural assault! Let my poem speak louder than any review can.




As the procession begins
the White Queen approaches
and I refrain from my endeavors
to take a look at her bountiful smile.

My note from Father to Son
seems to tell me
my father has fought with me
time after time!!!
A word in my ear;
but he says I can't
understand a word in it;
however, I understand perfectly
his ideals and allegiance with myself.

The White Queen bears sad, dark eyes
as it all began;
As she walks, the night grows darker,
on a breathless night 'til dawn.

As I come to the destination
of the mysterious ogre battle,
my fables return to my memory,
as I view the ugly sight.
The trumpets let out
their glorious scream,
as the battle continues!

My fairy feller's master stroke
may win the day,
and might deliver it's
gleaming gravestone malice.

The fight ends,
and the Ogres reach
the Valley of Nevermore,
where life refuses to grow,
and the lilies of the valley
die slowly.

What is that in the distance?
I hear the Black Queen!!!
As her majestic armies
extend their reaper hands,
they smite the White Queen
and her fairies.

I find the power to deceive,
and yet the power to believe!
Bringing her to ashes and
down to hell is possible, sure.

Some sugar and rub-a-dub-a-baby oil,
and her armies fall, one by one.
The victory sets upon the night,
it does, it does!

Funny how love is everywhere,
isn't it?
After the Black Queen dies,
the love comes back
fresh, anew.

I set for the Seven Seas of Rhye
in my next adventure,
never to seek hell again
from the deadly Black Queen!
I do like to be at the shores
at night, it's all so calming.
Only God knows what will
happen next, though...


In short, Queen II is what any classic Queen/rock fan will want and more. Buy this NOW.

Interesting. I was actually considering writing a poem for a review (I already wrote it), so maybe I'll post it soon. For your gumption, I pos.

Yeah, very creative review.

One of Queen's best album, right next to ANATO and Innuendo.

Um. Not sure how to feel about this. But there's not enough consonance, assonance, and alliteration. NEG NEG NEG.

I kid. Have a pos for simple audacity. But to be honest, this is definitely no T.S. Eliot =p
