AnElephantCant wear a suit of armour
He is not sure if he is chivalrously challenged or not
Is he piously able
To sit at the Round Table
During the halcyon days of the court of Camelot
Can he be the strong right hand of King Arthur
Who magically ascends to his ancient throne
He does as he is asked
Performs one surprisingly simple task
Extricates the great sword from the stubborn but selectively sticky stone
When the great Battle of Camlann is over
Arthur’s kingdom destroyed and no longer under rule
The last knight Sir Bedivere
Casts Excalibur back to Avalon mere
To a hand clothed in white samite mystic wonderful
His favourite character from days of yore is mystical Merlin
Arthur’s mentor who is sage as a wise wizard can be
He guides him so well
With pointy hat and magical spell
But sadly spends eternity trapped like a sap inside an evergreen tree
The saddest chapter in these extraordinary exploits
Concerns sweet but misguided cute Queen Guinevere
If you please her at the jousts
You can win a TV or a house
Nevertheless she retires to a nunnery with a sorrowful tear
Of all the knights of course Sir Galahad is the purest
Sir Gareth and Sir Percival battle bellicosely but merrily
Gawain ain’t too keen
On the knight wearing Green
Sir Kay is tough but his name is quite girly
AnElephant imagines himself riding with Sir Lancelot
Accompanying him on some noble nerve-jangling knightly quest
Not for the Holy Grail
He is impure so must fail
He prefers to rescue a delectable delightful damsel who is not too dramatically distressed
The not so English Lancelot, shiny armour, devoted to Eros .. yes, AnElephantCan be that ..
Extemely UnEnglish, dear chap, AnElephant is a Scot!
But he welcomes your comments, good Sir Bert.
Thank God, AnElephantHas ‘tiny’ toes … 🙂 …
At your service, fair lady!
UnElephant est assez courageux
Pour etre un chevalier Preux
De plus, amusant et desarmant,
Il gagne ses batailles
J’adore ce chevalier a longue trompe.
UnElephant monte jamais un cheval
Parce qu’il a peur he can fall
Sur son cul
awwww Sir AnElephant I do love this tale….especially since my girl Guine gets a mention. 🙂
You would make a very clever, devious knight 😉
No King Arthur without his errant queen!
Very nice, AnElephant is a real knight.
Tu es trop gentille!
