New blood flowing through my veins,
Invigorates my body and soul.
Heavenly passions fueling fires of love,
Set shining knights' hearts aglow.
Galloping hard to meet his foe,
Sir Lancelot rides again.
A dragon's tail to prove his worth,
Arthur's questing beast is slain.
Harbinger of humanity's unholy grail,
Destroyer of the Creator's bowl.
O' untimely Death thou art defeated,
Mankind's gravest mocker buried below.
Like the aroma of fine wine uncorked,
The future rushes out to meet me.
While doomsayers warn ships of storms to come,
I am lashed to the boundless vista of possibility.
