Carelyss Barista Wins Game of Thrones

by Julia Griffin

“HBO Admits ‘Latte’ in Last Night’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Was ‘a Mistake’”
—The Wrap

It landed like a direwolf strike,
That latte famed of yore,
And Hound and Worm devoured it like
A pail of dragon’s gore.

The Mountain shrank, the Walkers ran,
The Starks went raving mad,
And lots of characters began
To rue their arcs so bad;

For ’twas the star that bucked the trend,
This shot of fat-free foam:
It brought King’s Landing to its end.
Go, wargs! Now please go home.
