Esmeralda's Building a Rocket Ship....
Hey maybe I can sell this to CliffsNotes :-)

Esmeralda’s shining

Eyes are growing dimmer

Djali counts with cloven hoof

As tambourine bangles glimmer


Wooden letters defying scarlet

Djali spells her doom

Phoebus never had intention

To be a public dancer’s groom


Witchcraft critics find her guilty

The murder of her love a frame

Rescued thence by Quasimodo

To the Sanctuary of Notre Dame


Failed encounter with undead Phoebus

Framer Frollo tries to have his way

Quasimodo Esmeralda’s guardian

Steps in again to save the day


Parisian Gypsies attempt their rescue

Cut to ribbons by King Louis’ men

Frollo’s deception successful capture

Esmeralda’s his again


Given the choice of him or gallows

Esmeralda chooses rope

He casts her to her mother’s arms

Surrendering his amorous hope


Quasimodo stares in disbelief

At Frollo’s demented ruse

No one could ever have imagined

She’d prefer the hangman’s noose

Alas, I am unread. But a great tribute to the subject, nonetheless.

Well done, Patrick.

Outstanding! Inspired! Original! Drama that has played out over a million years! Fresh with open revolt! Powerful! It's primal and I intend to enjoy it for the rest of the day, maybe for years. This is what the literary gods have been waiting for, Patrick! Tucked amid the finest literary surprise! Bravo!
