Knights a coming, while the chorus is humming

The girls, streak past always passing

Celebrities howl, so they're always fasting

Rare days when fame, came from power

Making love, and inventing like a new flower

 

Days of the Knight, when the light was unseen

Dark days, but there was hidden gleam

When the chivalry shone through like a laser beam

Never had to be on the same team, it would seem

 

Dark nights howl, as the world seems low

When a old man is attacked for some dough

And a young girls raped, for the pleasure of chemical

And thats life is no excuse for this mans moral

 

It's a vain look for truth when your creeping down the roof

Trying to be free, when you make us all see

Your creative art in the form of stealth

Seep into the darkness that you made, for your health

 

Teenage wasteland makes me see life worth of sand

Its either this or hundreds of young men dead in no mans land

When the machine guns roar, and the missiles soar

All we can say is we've seen it all before.

TemplarBard:

Celebrity status is a lot like being a member of royalty. In that:

Once a King! Always a King!

Once a Knight! Should be enough!

Sorry for that.

Happier trails,

Ed Bradley.
