What c/c for this takeoff on "The Lion In Winter" poem?

"How dear of you to let me out of jail...." Beckett, dead in the Cathedral, memories of his, and your father's, arms, but that's only here-say heresy. "What mother does not love being locked-up with her children...." in the political boredom of throne ascendency.... but not... show more "How dear of you to let me out of jail...."
Beckett, dead in the Cathedral,
memories of his, and your father's, arms,
but that's only here-say heresy.

"What mother does not love being
locked-up with her children...."
in the political boredom of
throne ascendency....

but not this year, children.
"We'll see the Second Coming
before...." another carpenter
is resurrected from stone-tomb.

"Oh can't you see it is us!
Not countries, not politics,
who breed war....WE are
the barbarians, WE all carry

knives....can't we all live
in peace, for a change?"
We all own this earth,
indivisible by lines on a map.

Indivisible by who challenges who.
We are all barbarians
of the printed word....
"Love me, little lamb, or leave me."

"Departure is a simple act."
Put the left knife down,
and then the right....can't
we all live in peace, for a change?

"Well, all families have their
ups and downs...."

And, 'peace', correctly spelled
here and now, is 'a glimmering
of Light in barbarians' minds.'

We ALL wear cave-skins
to ward against cave-cold,
in fire-lighting our world
of neolithic ideas, printed 'again'.

Murder is a sport.
Again, take the knives I give you.
Update: Lines in quotation marks were spoken by Elinor of Aquitaine, in the 1968 movie "The Lion In Winter"
Elinor was played by Catherine Hepburn, with King Henry of England played by Peter O'Toole.
Update 2: Many metaphors in this write. Reread, to find their parallels here, in this poetry section.
Update 3: WUT....you got 4 points for your ridiculous answer which does NOT pertain to the c/c of this posted poem. You will not get the BA, bucko.
