Prince Valiant

Thinking all week of lithe Aleta in the deep
A bit like Jennifer Lawrence in toga
Salvaging the wreck
Holding her breath
Holding the line and
Heading up in the dark green current
Just a butt nip ahead of
Scylla the giant eel
With flashing sharp teeth, whoa!
Going down to Felix's bodega
To get this week's Herald
With Prince Valiant on the cliff above.
