Black Knight

Why are you showing up for battle?

Why now?

Why not earlier? Why not later?

You gallop into this war

attempting to be a hero

of an already lost battle.

Oh brave black knight!

Long rainy nights are ahead

If you could only understand

If you could only see.

Take a peek inside the castle

You will see,

there are no survivors,

you will not make it alive!

Oh brave black knight!

I wish you had a fighting chance!

To see you at the top of the mountain

proclaiming the victory.

Will you make it brave black knight?

Will you surrender before starting the fight?

Will you go home and not even start the journey?

Or will you die in the field fighting the good fight?
