The Sage's Quandary

The Sage's Quandary

'Tis about time you showed for I am all at sea

This buxom wench has possessed me again

Causing butterflies to flit within my ample gut

My heart beats most uncontrollably and I am lost

For the sage 'twas such a dilemma and the cost!

Why the cost could be his head and his heart but

Still he would have to help the king with the pain

Knowing the wench loved not his majesty but he!

Thou art silent knave has the devil beguiled

Thee? Tell me once again if I am stupefied

By lust or should I take upon myself a new wife?

Answer quickly lest thy head will be forfeit

Once more around this lighted fire we sit

And talk about the ways of love and of life

I have explained to thee many times and tried

To convey that now is not the time to get wed

I have heard thy words but 'tis lust I feel

The sage thought fast slippery as an eel

So what of it sage?

Think of her age

I have 'tis stirring

(My mind is whirring)

You answer not

'Tis true I cannot

I begin to see

Don't punish me

You are cunning as a fox

Not a bit she has the pox

I am cursed 'tis true? O calamity!

Aye 'tis true now would I lie to thee?

Gad zukes! What varlet dare deceive?! Amusing and clever, Alistair.

I love your silly period pieces with knaves and beheading and all other sorts of British banter!  Cute. Funny. Snide. --David
