Viking Life

On the day I joined the Vikings,
we decided to take a break
from conquering
and we feasted instead.
For 9 out of 10 Vikings will agree
that feasting is more fun than conquering.
There’s more mead to go around,
you won’t get seasick in a storm,
the music can be quite good,
and the only chance of injury
is if you steal Ornoff the Grumpy’s
leg of mutton
and he finds out it was you.
