A knight in shining armour, how many women dream of finding theirs? But he can come with baggage, in this case it’s his shining armour!
I was reading the stories of the days of King Arthur,
And the woman he loved dearly, the beautiful Martha;
Of his acts of gallantry, a chivalrous armour clad knight,
But of how in the bed chamber things were not going right.
It took him so long to remove his armour plating,
That Martha fell asleep, while she was waiting.
So a plan he devised, it was clever and cunning,
No armour was needed if he simply kept running.
If the enemy couldn’t catch him he’d not have to fight,
And he’d be ready for Martha, Oh! what a good knight!
But his planned battle tactics upset the Lord Howard,
Who accused our good king of being a coward.
And he challenged King Arthur to a duel with the lance;
Now with no battle armour, Arthur stood little chance,
So he got out his armour and dusted it down,
Put on breast plate and helmet, first removing his crown,
Arthur met with Lord Howard in a field after dawn,
(To keep this from Martha he had solemnly sworn).
The duel did not last long, only two charges they said,
Before the Lord Howard, in the long grass lay dead.
Removing breast plate and helmet he went back to his Martha;
And no one ever again dared to challenge King Arthur.
The moral of the story; “When your knight you do find,
Make sure that he leaves his shining armour behind”.
