King Jimi Blue's Grand Speech -- A Dragonwyck Tale
Late night, in the grand hall of King Jimi Blue
The king addressed a room full of happy peasants
All of their adoring faces with smile and cheer
With grand style, King Jimi makes his speech
 
The sound of cheers roll through the grand hall
Whistles and waves of maidens join in as well
A proud king blushes and continued to speak
At key points the crowd stood quietly to listen
 
More cheers as great things were promised
The king was happily proclaiming joyfulness
Thrusting his arms up, he promises riches for all
Cheers become so loud they awake those asleep
 
Last Temple Knight was awoken by the cheers
After a quest that lasted all day, he had sought rest
The cheers attracted his attention to the grand hall
Wondering what was amiss, he went to the hall to see
 
Through a door off to the side and behind the king,
LTK saw the crowd of peasants and heard the king
Speaking of things grand and regal, Jimi went on & on
LTK was impressed indeed, but something was off
 
The tired knight walked over to the crowd's first row
The king was so busy speaking he failed to notice him
LTK reached out and with a slight poke that row fell
Backward it tumbled along with several other rows
 
King Jimi's speech was cut off by the cries of woe
Looking over the scene, LTK merely shook his head
Amongst the peasants who were really mannequins
Sir Filthy and Sir Len caught up in yards of string
 
Full sized mockups of peasants lay in disarray
King Jimi's mouth wide open with shock
Two of his knights struggling to get untied
From the strings attached to the fallen dolls
And the third quietly pondering his life choice...
Author's Notes:
Inspired by a TV commercial where one unknown phone company tried to imitate a more popular one by having a crowd of cardboard cutouts to make it look like they were the same.
