Dragons 101

A KNIGHT IS A KNIGHT

Or: What happens when a knight sleeps through Dragonslaying 101

Sir Gregor of Denth was the bravest of knights
And many a tale was told
Of the many opponents he did dispatch;
But perhaps he was too bold.

For Gregor’s teachers did warn him:
“Someday the fight will come.
And on that day you will much regret
Sleeping through Dragons 101.”

“A knight is a knight is a knight;” said he,
“Whether it be morning or noon.
And any Wyrm that thinks to defeat me
Comes flying to his doom.”

A messenger came one midsummer morn
Seeking a knight of renown;
Sir Gregor answered before he knew
It was a dragon that had been found.

“A knight is a knight is a knight” said he,
“No matter the time of day.”
He lowered his visor and lifted his shield
And swiftly rode away.

Gregor attacked on the following dawn,
And it was a terrible fight;
For the one lesson our knave never learned
Is that dragons are blind at night.

“A knight is a knight is a knight,” he gasped,
“No matter the time of day.”
And with those gallant words of wisdom
Did brave Gregor pass away.

So forget mathematics, and governing, and law;
With those, nothing need be done.
The one class none ever should miss
Is Dragons–101.
