Prompts and Rules

Pingback

Back in the day knights were all handsome and brave and their ladies lived in castles and worked on their weaving or tapestry. Everyone was happy… really??

A Knight’s Lament.

In days of old when knights were bold

The dwellings stank and winds blew cold.

The blacksmith lost a stone a day

Slaving in his forge to earn his pay.

The damsels in their gowns billowing

Trudged through mud a flowing.

The knights in their armour still died

Their damsels in their draughty castles cried.

The halls were draughty the bedrooms

Worse no flushing loos what a curse.

In days of old when knights were bold.

Life was hard if truth were told!

    Life definitely was hard back then, not at all glamorous like the stories indicate
