The Royal Joust

Rich nobles and landowners,
Kings and princes,
Fair ladies from the farthest lands.
A royal call for all to witness,
Courage, battle, victory with raised hands!
Armoured warriors on horseback,
Swinging swords of steel.
Horsemanship, accuracy and combat,
A great feast, there be the heartiest of meals!
Formality abounds,
Brutality wed with grace.
Ah, but to sing the songs of praises
Brings cheer to those who clutch the mace.
Glory, sweet glory will await
The few who ride true.
Those gallant knights they must oust,
We welcome you to the Royal Joust!
