The Return of the Gay Knight

For my satire group, and for Will; a fairy tale To a fanfare of horns The young knight returned With a tale of slain dragons to tell The princesses blushed And the old queen flushed And the gay knights were happy as well He had cast down his cross From the height of his hoss And left the thing there where it fell For the great and the good Were in need of the wood To stoke up the fires of hell He’d only been back for a moment before He was begging a poke with a pardon And a giggle, and “Push!” From a quivering bush Could be heard from the end of the garden No need for a graven memorial stone Or the ring of a funeral bell The young knight was back And well up for the crack And all in the kingdom was well © Gail Foster 2016
