    Footles are beyond my writing capabilities... it's for sure a challenge to rhyme, be witty, relevant, and still do it all in just four syllables! You, however, have gotten this down to a tee. I think the steel cone in stone was my favorite... awesome job!

    Ha...I wonder if a knight ever said during a siege, "Damn, what a hassle!"...I bet so...;) This was fun!

    Excellent pieces! It looks like you have the whole Camelot drama in a nutshell! I bet it took quite a while to think of all these; but I see you are really good at it. Are the iambic or half iambic ones still called a footle?
