The Knights At The Fair

The Knights At The Fair

''Tis a glorious day on these fields of green.' said Al

Ye knights were off duty and at the local fair.

'Twas an annual feast of fun, food festival!

Friar Gene and Lady Linda were also there.

''Tis a coconut at which thou throwest a ball;

Should nut there fall a prize be one.' Gene to Linda

Said: 'But mark ye no magic or God curse us all!'

Regina, Dirk and Hank thought this was a winner.

Dave and John watched the boxing, awaiting Sir Len

Who every year dispatched many a foe int' ring.

However this year was large a field and most open.

Also fighting was Dick Grimm a man most daring.

All was peace and calm and as it should be for now;

For with the knights one never knew the end and how!

A fight broke out at the coconut shy cheating --

Yon fair-man had a-glued the nuts into their place!

Geena, Dirk and Hank caught him with winnings fleeing.

The big crook Grimm noticed this with scowl on his face.

He had his cronies -- wanted to make a killing;

All the stalls were rigged to lose and he would do well

Many villagers would offer up a shilling

But the pesky knights were all there and giving him hell.

At the boxing Len was fair rampant and winning.

Dave and John were cashing in on his great success;

Grimm, fed up with the knights did get into the ring.

Now we would see if the words were matched with prowess.

In Grimm's glove a horse-shoe had 'twas nought but a cheat!

A rigged fight most foul did this mean Len would be beat?

After ten rounds Sir Len had suffered a whacking

But Dave and John both looked at Grimm and smelled a rat.

They went to his corner and checked of his strapping;

Discovered the horse-shoe and gave Grimm the what's what!

Well it was known that Grimm was a crook hereabout.

But of his cronies were there many for the fights;

Len started things by giving Grimm a massive clout

And everyone piled in especially the knights!

Friar Gene and magic-less Linda did take score

And thus far the knights were winning by just a head.

But soon it was all over when called in 'the law',

Which was just right before someone ended up dead.

When all dusted down 'the law' cuffed all of the cheats;

And as reward King Al gave the knights Royal Treats.

I wish I had as active an imagination as you.  I've never been able to make up stories on a whim.  These are good.
