All Hail the King

Once again it’s time to crown Wicked Word Wednesday Winner.

I said when I posted this challenge that it might not be the best word choice. Perhaps the randomizer I use to pick the challenges knew something I didn’t, what with the rise of the Great Orange Leader (whose only resemblance to a lion is in color). Anyway, our Wicked Word was leonine.

leonine [\ˈlē-ə-ˌnīn\]



of, relating to, suggestive of, or resembling a lion


And now, the winners!

In Second Place . . .


From the Old French word leonin ,

or from the Classical Latin leoninus,

regardless of it’s beginning

you, dear man, are its end

with your hair so long and gold

muscles rippling, growl emitting,

you are a lion among men.

And in First Place . . .

Pleasant Street

I always thought we would stay together. I got scared and ripped the Band-aid off quick. I love how you talk to me, the leonine way your taut muscles ripple on your back, the short hairs on the nape of your neck.

Congratulations winners, and don’t forget your nifty badges!

Come back this Wednesday for another Wicked Word
