The Knights And The Dragons

The Knights And The Dragons

The dragon was enormous high as the castle wall

Flames of death threatened from its many-toothed gaping maw;

Sir David, Sir Len and the others saw many fall

While others were picked up and carried inside its jaw.

King Al and Friar Gene prayed hard for their salvation;

Lady Linda tried to knock the beasts out from the air

There were many and attacks came with repetition;

Knights charging to the battle with bravery and flair.

Len led the attacks with the enchanted sword but he too

Tired at the constant wave of scale and tooth and horned tail.

Even though they outnumbered them they appeared too few

And the sound of crackling wood mixed with villagers' wail.

A serious threat to the realm and their existence

Brought challenge to the knights and their Holy persistence.

'Tis not a hunt but a roast with us as the main dish!'

This from Sir Henry to Sir John who fought together.

'Our job is to make sure that they don't get what they wish.'

Sir Dirk fought hard with Geena like brother and sister.

'We should attack them now at the source of their power.'

Sir Dave counselled Al, 'Leave men here to guard the village.

I have watched as they all fly in from the Black Tower.

We need venture there a force here to stop the pillage.'

Bandits had used the dragons' attacks to make a raid.

'Go Sir David.' said Al, 'God speed.' came from Friar Gene.

Sir Len led them out as they went to the village's aid

Pumped and fired up as never before or ever seen.

They headed for the Black Tower and Count Lardiass;

But were watched by witch Orgasma in her magic glass.

Linda had felt the glass and with magic shattered it.

Negating the black witch's power Orgasma fled

But was stopped by a scouting Sir John with one hit.

This was no lady but a ghoul upon good she fed.

Dirk, Geena and Hank caught up with Lardiass inside.

Dave and Len questioned him about the dragons' power

They had to seek the Fire crystal which was a foot wide

And then smash it they then set off for the Black Tower.

They found it guarded by a fearsome dragon which Len - -

With the magic sword slew then smashed he the blood crystal.

At once the dragons began to fly home to the Den

Whilst the knights took their captives to be seen by King Al.

Al had them locked away and then threw away the key

And fixed all properties in the realm without a fee.

O Sovereign Liege!  'tis a ballad without equal!  Thou hast outdone thyself!  Whence thine inspiration?  Ah! Cometh from thy royal and loyal heart -- methinks...

Good show! We'll show 'em that we are not to be trifled with, albeit our size doesn't stand up to a dragon, our virtue, strength and faith in God and each other, far and away dwarfs such a leviathan. The kingdom, once again, is secure, hence our credo...."Let 'em know you're there!" lol. Good tale, Al, is Geena also a fighting knight? That would be cool if she was.
