The abominable snowman
Ain't just no man
He's a real cool guy.
It's just that Yeti
Ain't quite ready
To give mankind a try.

There, in Loch Ness,
I must confess
No monster lies within.
That's just a myth,
It was Kate Smith
With very scaly skin.

No Robin Hood
Lurked in Sherwood
To fight for poor men's rights.
It was a fairy,
Name of Larry
Who liked to wear green tights.

Brave Camelot
Was golden? - NOT!
It was a horrid sight.
Fair Gueneviere
Did just sleep here
But once - upon a knight.

Our legends are
Untrue, by far
But they deserve to stand
In history
For all to see
Next to......The Honest Man.

This tale was often told to me
while sitting on my father's knee
A poet fair would roam the land
always there to lend a hand
Reaching out to others in need
a poet, yea, a knight in deed.
One night in light of full moon's glow
the poet fair decided to go
Seeking succor for his soul
he needed rest to make it whole
His name is now a legend here
no longer, his voice do we hear
A stately figure, almost a ghost
no longer able to submit a post.
Even mythical poets fair
sometimes need a breath of air.
But in the silence of a starry night
I sometimes hear that noble Knight
whispers in meter with oft a rhyme
a knight, a poet, for all time.

How true... How true! Great ending. Have you ever heard Stan Ridgeways' (one time lead singer for Wall of Voodoo)song entitled "The Last Honest Man?" It echos your sentiment. Have a great day!

P.S. You were right about the bike. How about the second question?

As long as we have you Balladeer, our legends will edure throught the masterful strokes of your pen.  I, for one, am enchanted with your writes.  You keep them so alive!
