The Knights and Balthazar


The Knights And Balthazar



Foul bastard son of Mordred born

And heaped upon his shoulders scorn

A sickly youth a ne'er-do-well

His life a one-way trip to Hell;


Engaged was he in arcane arts

From early years in fits and starts;

But in his teens did hone his skill

And learned he to impose his will;


A band of brigands did he form

Who interbred and grew to swarm;

Unholy souls who lived for war

And followed not the common law;


Took he the name of Balthazar

A mystic mage who sought a star;

But he was not a man of peace

Through evil acts he found release;


Decided he to strike for gold

The Kingdom his if he were bold;

Against the Knights he sought to fight

Pure evil versus Royal light;


A plan he hatched to kidnap Bess

Immerse the King in harsh duress;

But fail did he with his disguise--

The knights alert were far too wise;


It came down to a bitter fight

The bastard and the Lords of Light;

The chosen sward on Magic Hill

The time was dawn the air was still;


Atop the hill all stood the Knights

From down below came Balthazar;

Employed he dragons in his fights

They could attack from near or far;


The flames from mouths did burn and scorch

Some Knights became a human torch;

But had they Linda great a mage

Thrust into battle centre stage;


She raised her arms and cast a spell

The Knights surrounded by a shell;

No flames could touch them in this state

And so did they retaliate;


Again a spell with lightning bolt

It forced the dragons there to halt;

Then down the hill they rushed as one

Then hand to hand the fight was on;


Sir Len and Kym did lead the rest

It proved a bitter gruelling test;

With sword on sword and daggers drawn

These Knights of light pushed back the spawn;


Did Balthazar raise strong defence

The fighting raw and so intense;

Drove on the Knights to seize the day

The brigands fell to knees to pray;


 Of Balthazar there was no sign

He had fled at his own design;

Where is not known but guarantee

The like of him again we'll see.
