and the citadel

This journal's Merlin fixation goes from bad to verse...

I am proud to present the pangalactic premiere of a picaresque and provocative piece of poetry! It was written by my estimable colleague allemande and myself*, and belongs to an exciting new literary genre called Merlinnuendo.

Ye Bawdy Olde Ballad of Two Boys and Their Beasts
Authors: redscharlach and allemande
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None, apart from a possibly life-threatening quantity of double entendre.
Summary: Merlin and Arthur acquire animals, but both of them fail to notice the elephant in the room.
