Two Old Poems

Hello, hello!

So I was looking through some of my older work that I had made a few years back, and I came across these two old poems that I thought were really funny and I wanted to share them with you.

Enjoy! 😀


The Jester

A jester played for the king

He danced and wanted to sing

But then with a slip he fell on his hip

And chipped his rear with a ding

The Knight who Challenged the Dragon

There was once a knight who was famous,

he was bold and brave.

This is a story placed in that time,

when he heard of a creature in a small cave.

 

‘I will go and slay him!’

said the knight with glee.

But then he saw the other ones who tried t’ slay the beast,

All ashen-faced and away to flee.

 

‘Is it really this bad?’

the knight asked the cowards,

‘Oh, yes!’ said they.

‘He gives us fire showers.’

 

Then the knight decided,

he would have a look.

So he grabbed his armor and sword,

and that is all he took.

 

Off he went to face the dragon,

looking all bold and brave.

The dragon looked out of his den,

looking mean and grave.

 

‘Another knight to eat!’

thought he and got ready to blast,

some fire to cook the knight,

with grilled horse and a boiled ship’s mast.

 

WHOOOM! Went the dragon,

and behold there was the soldier,

all burned and crisp with nothing moving,

except a small smolder.

  1. I liked the Jester! It made me laugh and pity him at the same time. I guess I was expecting a twist in the knight poem, so it ended rather anticlimactically. Not that it wasn’t good, but I got my hopes up for a surprise ending. XD
