unfortunately not the last white knight

within him it seemed

lay the last defence of the realm

steadfast bastion of decency

& i

was just some loathsome creature

vagabond wanderer with a smile

invader of young womens fidelity

which made it his vocation

to be the one true gallant knight

defeater of all dragons giants

itinerants vagrants virtue thieves

& i

asked if he’d read Cervantes

heard of the honourable Don Quixote?

but no

who needs books with knights like these?

& the joy in all of this is

the fair maiden heard my wordplay

saw more in that than his swordplay

let me carry her away

for adventures

in realms anew
