Vlad the New Tailor and Entourage
Vlad the new tailor
Is not an impaler
Unless you are considering his thumb.
Cossacks travel with him
Dressed in fine trim
Serving as protection and companion.
Not all who follow are male
Lady Cossacks fill the detail
Whether on horse or in the household they run.
Cossack riders can be impressive indeed.
They ride swiftly and can fight from their steed.
Their riding is almost like a dance.
Vlad travels in style, his carriage matches his taste.
Black is his favourite colour with red it is traced.
Cossack driver and footman complete his ride.
A tailor needs supplies.
Of course that doesn’t come as surprise.
A wagon to match his carriage suits his needs.
When stormy evenings arrive
The group gathers to jive
All around the fireplace they gather in fun.
Introducing a new arrival in town. Vlad the new tailor arrived with a bit of fanfare especially when Sir Biff thought he heard the fellow was “Vlad the Impaler”. After some intrigue things were straightened out.
Vlad was introduced almost a year ago in the short cartoon I wrote for Halloween called “Vlad!“. It is hard for me to believe The Gnome Tapestry is almost one year old.
