EGILL'S DESCENT

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

Egill Skallasgrimsson

was a noble Viking warrior

& titular star of his own saga;

slayer of Eric Bloodaxe’s son.

 

Egill fearlessly pillaged

& plundered

took on the mighty sea;

slayed royalty for vengeance

 

And now provides the name 

for a beer and beverage company

in Iceland

making trendy beverages flow.

 

So now effete beer geeks like me

can ponder the nuances

of three different IPA’s 

and assign a rating for each one.

 

Hate to scare you, people,

but the transformation

from Leif Ericsson to Leif Garrett

is reaching the final stages.

Viking Lore

Not quiet Thor or Ragnar

or Hollywood's version of  Aegir (also a brewing company)

but it does go  down smooth

for officianados of beer.


:D
