The Princess Bride

I watched the Princess Bride,
For maybe the tenth time,
P'haps the most perfect movie ever made,
If I may so opine,

There are no walls for anyone to climb,
This film embraces all,
A fairy tale seen through th'eyes of a child,
Told by the old and illustrious Pete Falk.

A tale of love with no complications,
Which evil tries to court,
But then a giant, swordsman, man in black,
All conspire to thwart.

'Spite being dead!
Well, being mostly dead,
Can true love e'er be truly defeated?
"Inconceivable", as Wallace Shawn said.
