Arthurian knights are assembled by moor,
Begging wiz Merlin to try to ensure
Camelot's future will always be free... from
Dastardly, devilish sorcery.
Ever evinced by evil Morgana's
Frightening, mystical, magical aura,
Gawain raises sword against wicked disorder.
His brother knight, Tristan, throws in with
Isolde. Now who should appear with his lance to the
Joust? A challenge to hearten a hero no doubt.
Kay sayeth: "Lo, we must press on to the battle.
Let all worthy knights raise their banner and mantle.
Men of good grace, with God's favour and fettle,
Ne're doubt your sacred, good quest and your mettle.
O'er mountain and valley and plain you will travel,
Perchance you'll rely on your brav'ry and prattle.
Queen and King, both, are beguiled by your charms.
Realms and republics will bow to your arms.
Satan, you'll vanquish, and witches and wizards,
Terrible trolls and dragons and blizzards.
Uther's son, chosen king, you are our saviour.
Verily, you'll win Blessed Virgin's own favour.
Whether sword, faith, or fighting, unfaltering honour,
Xanthous Queen Guinevere, focus of ardour.
Ye purest of soldiers, call fourth all your valour.
Zenith of knightly quest, Albion's flower."
