A knight in armor road the way
Full of pride that mournful day
It could be in his visor slept
He passed maidens where they wept

Distressed damsels cried out his name
He road on by he was not to blame
They wore such fancy see through clothing
And became the subject of his loathing

He passed beseiged castles at a trot
Those damned vassals deserved their lot
They drank their wine as peasents burned
It was his joy to watch them learn

He wore the blackness of the night
His heart was laced with hopeful light
His soul where anger's talons cut
And rage was all that filled his gut

Helping others not his forte
The reason why he road this way
The sword he wore he killed each foe
Why deemed a knight who wants to know
