Once upon a time
there was a handsome knight
with beautiful hazel eyes.
He left home one day at dawn;
his horse galloped along,
heading for the far off immured land of two immortal rivers,
seeking out a beautiful Babylonian princess
with eyes and hair darker than the Arabian Desert’s starry nights.
He arrived, cloaked in blue
that beamed with fifty stars in bright white,
over a garb
that was striped in red and glowing white.
And while the demon and his disciples drowsed deep in the night,
he nimbly slipped by, and with kid gloves, stole the princess’s heart.
And just as he rode her on top of his white horse
to take her to his faraway land,
a giant sword precipitated out of the blue
with one powerful clout
their two amorous hearts were rent apart.
