    dotsThe Ballad of the Gray Knightdots

    The king rides out with banners bold
    to conquer distant lands of moors
    (while carrying along his whores)
    and left behind in much distress
    a chastened queen in metal cold.

    What justice can we seek for she
    who carries such a treasure chest
    (and passion deep within her breast)
    and yet no key that may release
    that grail of highest purity.

    Call forth the hero of the day
    a nobleman who will not smirk
    (yet handy with a slender dirk)
    war has called both white and black,
    consider then the Knight of Gray.

    An aged warrior left behind
    she beckons through a secret way
    (and notices he's truly gray)
    "I've never seen so many keys"
    grateful for that act most kind.

    The years have past without a King
    and Saladin remains supreme
    (justice perhaps? so it would seem)
    A Regent Queen she now does rule
    her son's gray eyes are sparkling

      i love the medieval setting. i do a lot of writing in this era, and i enjoy the five bar setting. i haven't seen it used that often, and your use of it is both unique and it works.

      LOL @ Dale P's comment, first of all.

    I liked this one greatly. Very cleverly presented, and the whole chastity belt issue... I guess they didn't worry about bj's back in those days, or there would have been Hannibal masks as well. Leave it to a man to have his whores and his adventures, and still have time to worry about how to prevent his woman from having fun while he's out having fun himself.

      Heh... Very different than what I have been reading as of late in a good refreshing way. What a lucky gray knight... Freeing that which has been locked and left there without caring. Physiological needs satisfied.

      As a schoolgirl, I was horrified by the idea of chastity belts. Thinking only of daily bodily functions being impaired and the inability to keep up a minimum of cleanliness.
    As a grown woman, chastity belts horrified me even more; understanding the demeaning and unnatural position they put a woman in.
    I'm certain your knight was a greater hero to the queen than all of the warriors combined!
    A clever tale, Lloyd. Thanks for reposting this, as I must have missed it first time around.

      When I was young and read about the crusades and
    all of those fools marching off to the holy lands. I thought how fun it would have been to be a locksmith
    in those days.
    A locksmith who stayed home. A locksmith with discretion. I think It would have had enough perks to keep me happy. As I grow older I dream of investing in
    a titty bar and retiring.
    Still and all great Poem

      Interesting rhyming scheme . I can't tell you how many times i've imagined being left behind in times of war and chastity belts with the ring of keys . The quality of mercy would not be strained , perhaps sprained , definitely not unemployed . Ah what a daydream . Thanks I needed that .
