Naughty John Mulligan: Ode to a Bad Boy (With Apologies to Dr. Seuss)
I'm a huge fan of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (the animated version) and the song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" . . . as I perused some delicious screencaps of the gorgeous bad boy John Mulligan from "Moving On" as played by the amazing Mr. Richard Armitage, that song popped into my head. And this followed . . . enjoy!
You're a dark one, Mr. M . . .
A serpent in the grass-
There's no doubt that you could charm us
We'd never dream you'd harm us
Mr. Mmmmm-until we took a second look at that predatory grin!
You're a smooth one, Mr. M . . .
Those honeyed northern vowels-
Sporting great designer stubble,
leaving hearts smashed into rubble
Mr. Mmmmmmm-how much sin could we get into with the likes of you?
You're a charmer, Mr. M . . .
Employing boyish grins-
With a crinkle of that forehead
By those blue eyes we're adored
Mr. Mmmmmm-until the wolf sinks his teeth right in!
Mr. Mmmmmm . . . I describe you with these words borrowed from Lady Caroline Lamb:
You're mad, bad and dangerous to know!
(But you look so very good doing it . . . thud)
