The Drunken Knight

I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.

The Drunken Knight

The Drunken Knight

The Drunken Knight

The good king saw that evil was running rampant across his land.

So he sent his best knight, to lend a helping hand.

His armor silver-plated, his hair long and braided.

His sword and shield, are the knight's best friends.

Unfortunately for demons, it means their quick end.

He roams the lands hunting the wicked, so monsters fear!

He's leaving pieces of evil creatures everywhere.

Collecting gold for his good deeds.

But all the while, all he wanted mead.

All was quiet, all monsters were slain.

The knight now had nothing but mead on the brain.

He looked for a pub to have a few drinks.

He found one that was called "Fizzily Winks".

The drunks were loud and unruly.

The wenches were fat, smelly, and drooly.

The brave knight sat down and ordered a mead.

He drank six or seven until his mind felt freed.

He looks all around and thought, "what a disgrace, there's smelly monsters all over the place."

"By order of the king, they must be destroyed!"

"Its time for my sword, to once again be employed."

When he lifted his sword, you can guess what happened next.

The now widowed wives must pay their respects.

An entertaining read, loved your artwork. The knight off to finish his work after a short stop at the bar, I can imagine what state he was in after all those drinks!

Jason Nicolosi (author) from AZ on March 19, 2020:

Haha, I loved your comment. I thought it was super funny Nell. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it!

Nell Rose from England on March 19, 2020:

Sounds like the town next to mine, fat and smelly and drooly, carrying toilet rolls! LOL! I loved it!

Thanks for commenting Denise, I appreciate it. I'm happy you enjoyed it. I hope you have a wonderful Saint Patrick's.

Okay, I'm amused. The drunken knight had a point; pubs are a place for monsters to congregate. The problem is that he was one of them.

Thank you very much, Dora. I appreciate your comment. Never drink mead while carrying a sword. Someone could get hurt. ;-)

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 15, 2020:

Good that the knight completed his task. Not good that he sat down to drink while he still had his sword. Good that you crafted a good read!

Hi, Lorna thank you for your wonderful comments. I truly appreciate them. Thanks for the positive feedback on my artwork. Your compliments made my day!

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 12, 2020:

HaHa, This was funny and rhymed so well. If there is a moral to this poem, it must be ' don't drink and carry a sword '

Tiyasha Maitra from Gurgaon on March 12, 2020:

Love the poem and the sketch. I agree with Lorna about your storytelling skills. Great job Jason.

Lorna Lamon on March 12, 2020:

You are a great story teller Jason and this tale is witty and lighthearted. I think the moral to the tale is hilarious and once again I am so impressed with your artwork. Loved it.
