The Knight and His Flyswatter

No knights in shining armour!

Nor gallant steeds at his heels!

No princesses to rescue –

Our hero struck a different deal.

-

Our knight and his flyswatter

Made the greatest pair of all

They travelled over countries

Fighting all flies, great and small.

-

Summer was their season

As the flies came out to play

With only a few wild flails

There the flies' bodies lay.

-

The knight and his flyswatter

Showed no mercy to any fly

If they saw one, you could say

To the poor creature: 'good bye!'

-

One day, they were swatting flies

As they usually did

However, this time, tables turned;

More flies came than expected.

-

A war raged between the flies

And our gallant knight

His flyswatter loyally lashed out

Beginning a major fight.

-

Although he was scared, our brave knight

With his flyswatter he swept

Across the sea of many flies

Amongst his foes, no lives were kept.

-

The news reached the ears of the King

And the many victims of flies

They cheered when the knight returned

And worshipped him till he died.

-

The whole world knows about the flies;

Those creatures of the purest evil.

But are flies really the pests they seem

Or are they just trying to live?
