Knight of Rusted Armor

The battle is finished
and I stand alone.
My armor was pierced
I must atone.
I feel faint of heart
my eyes do tear.
The water created
causes me to fear.
My joints grow stiff,
they're hard to move
A yellow brick road
is my new groove.
I'm a knight with armor
rusted in place.
Spray WD- 40
upon my face.
Then follow the road
to find a new heart,
for mine has broken
and's fallen apart.
They called me, "Knight,"
when this all began.
I have a new name now ...
Dorothy's ...... "Tin Man."

Author's Notes:

OK, so this is stretching things a little more than usual .... so what? 
What was it that this is called?
Poetic license?
