Prompts and Rules


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!
