Good Knight Part III


H.J. Cruz



Sayeth mum, loosen times sand

Lest it be mortar betwixt thine own hands,

Singeth the song and ferget it not,

Memoriam shant forsake royal blood clot.


Hold yer tongue lad, tip toe whence upon graves

Iron rusts slowly save eunuchs and knaves,

Lack of virtue amidst indiscretion,

Another spot of tea & on with yer lesson.


Incredulous naiveté of youth, word unspoken

Bequeath hearts will, sojourners token.

His kiss fare-de-well inhaileth my soul

Drunken oblivion spareth control.


A theif, a scoundrel, I was usurped

Yet yearned & tingled form toe to breast,

Silly youg maiden; he gathered his mount

Helmut now gleamed; the pride of a count.


Fear not for my safe return,

Spirit or flesh doth honor earn.

Stallion reared up, lance thrust in air,

For King & country & maiden so fair.


Trodded off churning dust in his wake,

Chivilrous communion, distant lands forsake,

Misty blue, wanton wench forlorn,

A kings chaff beateth a good mans corn.


Days to weeks, months to years,

Bloody campaign brought sorrow & tears,

Bells now tolled, hear yee town crier

A whey faced harpy listed thou sire.

On the morrow came remnents of legions,

Shattered honor, immoral lessons of reason.

Wounded sentry carried forth the account

Whence Good Knight fell from his mount.


The crafty caliph, he had well planned

Led eager knights through the hot sand,

Taunting skirmishes in a blistering sun

Armor now cauldrons, a mouthless dragon.


For days they cried for water,

Saladin moved in for the slaughter.

Yet Chritian ranks they held firm,

Till sultans masses began to turn.


Turks held grip on oh precious springs

Thirst conquered flesh as madness sings,

Chaos reigned as bastions splintered forces,

The stage pre-empted, riderless horses.


Now tethered remnant vanquished in mock

Surrendereth pride to sultans chopping block,

Most humbleing exhibition, scimitar of red

Limb piles of agony, torsoless heads.


Widow now silent as vement eyes scream,

Executioner still slayeth young maidens dreams.

Damb honor, damb religion and King all to Hell,

Rivers of blood for glory, thy reapers own spell!


Oh Mahomet up high on chariots hill

Doth Jesus shed tears for mortal mans will.

Saladin, Binladin thee icons of  woe

Temper thine metal of weaken thou soul?

This is wonderfully sustained, HJ, and I salute you for it! It's not easy to craft such a narrative with such convincing skill without losing something of the plot or the quality of the language. But you have maintained both and the result is quite epic! Well done! Kate xx

Sir Honey Jam this be a glimpse of apocolyptic carnage. Thou dost rattle the thoughts and pierce the hearts of thy readers with such vividness of image and sword-sharp words! Yea, tis sadly so for fools and widows caught in the wheels of war.

HJ, long time no see! ! ! welcome back! ! ! my body was out of town while I was here, illness you know, and now I see that you still have that sharp quill of yours to call a spade for a spade.
And very actual too.
