Paul Muad'Dib (Limericks)

by J. P. Davies

There once was a boy on Caladan,
The son of a duke and his lady,
He packed up and flew,
from oceans of blue,
His name it was Paul Atreides.

Now his home was Arrakis,
the planet the Fremen called Dune,
By a Baron, hard willed,
his Father was killed.
His life it now seemed in ruin.

But he ran to the desert in haste,
became Usul of Tabr Seitch,
He won their respect,
and he began to suspect,
That power was within his reach.

He rode the great worms on the sand,
and loved the neice of the Naib.
Killed Harkonnens,
commanded his men,
And adopted the name Muad'Dib

So he dipped into the Spice water,
and changed the poison to vision,
A future so sad,
a brutal Jihad.
He had to make a decision.

So he raised himself an army
a brutal force without pity.
Fanatics from Tabr,
Killed all Sardaukar,
Outside of Arakeen City.

He had promised them water from heaven,
enough to quench all their thist.
Married the daughter,
of Emperor father,
Became Ruler of The Universe.

awesome! I'm also a fan of the Iron Maiden version in song form, "To Tame a Land". yours would also make a great song, i bet the limericks would translate well to music ;)
