Knight

You knight, who sit so arrogantly tall on your perfect white horse.
You knight, God’s problem solver and savior to the land.
You, oh knight who I’ve so long despised,
Wrote epic poems, casting you as the antagonist.
Knight!

I’ll give you a break.

For I’ve discovered that to come to the rescue is human nature.
Even the fair damsel, zebra-dress attired
Can fall into the snare of saving those in the mire.
So, knight, I’ll let you off because I know…

Your a white knight, sure, but not so depressed.
He’s a white knight whom a soul doth posses.

Fine, you win, after all what kind of being could,
Watch the predator sneak toward the flock and not cry wolf.

Who could look a blue infant in the face and not lift him from the drowning waters.
But could you stop a novice from moving to checkmate?
Or the mother from accepting candy from a stranger.

I have no place to say it, and she ought to know better.
It’s their move, but I can’t stand by and watch,
Because I am like him and…

He’s a white knight, sure, but not so depressed,
He’s a white knight whom a soul doth posses.

Don’t get me wrong, I still beg you to stray,
Away and away and away and away.
From prissy little damsels in distress.
They’ll only return back to the dragon’s den,
Or prick the spinning wheel again, and again, and again and again.
You can’t help but try to keep her from the fire.
But then she goes and throws her body upon it.
Ouch, those dire…consequences,
That she’ll have to deal with.
But you still want to save her,
So what I’m trying to say is that I apologize and realize why.

Your a white knight, sure, but not so depressed,
Your a white knight whom a soul doth possess.

Artist's Description

If you’ve read my other work “Damsel”, you’ll get the repetitive line in there. Recently I’ve changed my mind (a little) about the knight archetype.
