Halfpipe Overlords

Hail to the Lords of the boards from Bangkok!
Reunited here in the province where
over the hills, by a gas station, amidst the bamboos
a local Rastafarian prince built his own castle,
a halfpipe doubling up as a temple to Mr Marley.

We farang visitors brought along the charcoal
and selected cuts of meat, and squids 
all humble offers to be grilled and washed down
with prodigious sips of of Thailandese Leo beer,
while the Sire and his heirs pirouetted on wheels.

Hail to the Lords of the boards from Bangkok!
Whose greatness is all but oppressive,
guests as we were, they showed us friendliness
their chariots of war painted in bright colours
rode high and above to please the foreign envoys.
