A Knight of Passion

In days of old, 
ye knights were bold
And Dragons roamed the land
Sir Lancelot, he was a knight
And Fought with Sword in hand
White horse he rode 
With his lance
A shiny  suit of armour
Beware this knight, the story goes
He really is a charmer!
Now one fine day, he saw a lass
And whispered in her ear
A shock he got, when she revealed
I’m lady Guinevere
In love they fell
Before too long
Merlin cast a spell
While hunting out one afternoon
The king, black knight would tell
Black knight ‘s plan
Came alight
When Lancelot was banished
Shed a tear, did Guinevere 
When she learned he’d vanished.
Now this legend 
Hath been told
A morale doth contain
Keep your lance, tucked in your pants
And save yourself the pain!

Hello Roger, Really like the way the poem blends together from title to final line. I enjoy wit, humor and irony in a poem and this has it all. Arthurian legend and Camelot are changed forever. Oliver

We must observe "Bewares" that cause pain and leave us nothing gained. Good work Roger

A remarkable poem on the Knights of the Round Table, and the tragic tale of love and lost friendship, a beautiful poem indeed.

But if the knight had done what you advised, there would be no Knight Of Passion...
