I stand yn a time of weakness
         betwene my god and my kyngedom

My fortune made by the swerde of power
         plucked herewyth frome the red towre

Yn many batayles yt brought victory
         and chopped off many a hede lykewise

But now methinks doubt ys in my herte
         and hit hath bene here frome the start

Were hit not for thys holyer than thou swerde
         wolde I be a glorious and grete kynge?

Hath fortune nat lyffted me up hygh
         wold I sytte so close to the sky?

What yf I lost my castell and riches
         my name, or God forbid, my penys?

Wolde I then be the vessel of God
         styll kynge though so very flawed?

What yf fortune hath nat loved me
         or borne me uppon yts myghty fate?

Thank God for fortune, I syng of ye!
          All my songs are dedycated to thee!

Written at a time when type writers were bereft of certain letters.
Mind you, as a Scot, I speak with an accent that is economic in its use of letters eg 'whauryegan'?'= 'Where are you going?'

Watch out for a poet bearing fortune cookie?
May good fortune indeed shine upon your blessed brow.

not sure why...but I did not have much of a problem with the creative streak you used here...maybe it is cause I spell Ernie, Erny...
I like to see folks get down and boogie with the language from time to time...this is such a and well done.

I believe those were the first two lines? Now I have a headache. I almost thought I had been drinking and tried to cross my eyes to see better, lol! Kidding aside, it was great stuff!

Great play with language. Why not create your own? Fascinating how it's understood. And, as always, a combination of profound, quirky, and uniquely Brett-funny. Jerelyn

Did they talk like this in the Medieval times, I wonder?! Brett, you are witty, clever and original as always. Incidentally, Tales of Brother Goose deserves to be the moern day version of Aesop's Fables!

I thought my glasses were dirty at first. Then I thought that maybe several of the keys on your keyboard had died and you were struggling.

After clearing my throat, and cleaning the lenses, though, I began understanding that you were just blurring the boundaries of conventionalism with your wit.

Light and Wisdom ...
