Amongst white heather the knight stood his ground
As the black onyx dragon reared its head,
The creature inhaled with a whirlwind sound
And glared at the knight with its eyes blood red!
With dawn at his back the knight drew his sword,
The steel it did gleam in the morning light,
With loud cry he yelled, “For Kingdom and Lord!”
And thus began this epic vicious fight!
Intense plasmatic flames struck the knight’s shield,
But enchanted metal does have its worth,
When fire subsided the knight spun to wield
Excalibur; cleaving through devil’s girth!
With dragon’s head towed, too heavy to lift,
To Camelot he road, with Merlin’s gift.
