English: Illustration of a knight in Gothic armor from Concilium zu Constanz woodcut (digitized page 34 of 509) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

off on a quest goes the brave intrepid knight
looking to make his name in knightly lore
sauntering off in great expectation of defeating dragons
and looking to even the knightly score

wielding a shiny lance for battle bright
against the fiery breath that kills all life
and swinging a mighty mace with all his might
to save a lovely maiden from a dreadful strife

roar, slash, duck, wail
bleed, cry, die, fail

now as this medieval tale comes to a grisly end
there sits the dragon in a ghastly cavern, dark and deep
having swallowed the poor barbecued knight whole
but does the dragon hear yonder maiden weep?

    Can anyone doubt I wrote the original poem that this was based on in high school? I took out most all of the “doth” and “yonder ho” and “thou” stuff. It wasn’t necessary for the dark humor.
