To Freyja’s Wedding (Loki Inspired)

Shall I wear green or blue,
Will I bring something borrowed or new,
I wonder what Thor will look like that night,
as we prepare him for a wonderful flight,
For you see it was promised to the giants one day,
That Freyja would be brought to their home to stay,
But instead of giving up the beautiful Van,
I concocted an ingenious plan,

I would use Thor as a pawn in my master plan,
To win back the hammer, placed in giant hand,
I would dress him in white, fine linens and lace,
Place jewels on his fingers, and disguise his face,
I would lay veil upon his thunderous brow,
and make him a lady, fitting to be wed,
Perhaps even an amber jewel hung round his neck,
To give the illusion that he was not a risk,
but the lady Freyja with magical gifts,

I was surprised to find that no one saw clear,
This man had not bosoms so fair, nor did he have,
The Vans red and luscious lips, nor fine hair tied in clips,
No instead, it was hard to disguise what he was,
That armour is not easy to mask,
But still no one saw that it was Thor in her stead,
Too bad this means that the giants will be dead

But, gee it was fun to watch him that night,
And string them along with stories of why,
She drank all the liquid and ate all the food,
Man I am good, I convinced them enough,
and then they brought the hammer all right,
and man then the wedding became a fight

To the left and the right,
giants flung over head, I am glad it was not me,
and that he hit them instead,
he tore his dress, his hair was a mess,
and boy if you had only seen my face,
a grin slightly smirky, would have been there,
as all the giants cleared the air

but the greatest thing about this day,
was the picture of good old Thor,
dressed like Freyja, which I hung on my door,
To remind me that the man, who is great indeed,
Managed to bend to the will of someone like me,
I will never forget the wonderful night,
When I took old Thor and dressed him up like a girl,
And I don't think he will forgive me for this,
But I kind of thought, man he looks hot in that dress!
