To what do men owe to fellow man:
War, greed and villainy?
What do thy actions breed:
Self-appointed “chivalry”.
Nobility, like commonfolk
In times of greatest need.

The Island of Apples is where he lay,
The Water’s Lady and his Blade.

Cupped, the Grail, overflowith’.
What men of status crave and desire,
To drink the secrets within.

The Island of Apples is where he lay,
The Water’s Lady and his Blade.
Life to the legend, born of Pendragon;
Returned to the Water’s Lady, his Blade.

Or my alternate title, "Water's Lady and Blade". This is a poem about the legend of King Arthur: any questions on what I mean by any of the words in the poem, please simply ask and I will respond.
