Looking for a Knight – Free Verse

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“A knight in shining armor!”
is what I asked for in the ad
“must be handsome and bold, for sure,
but not just a pretty face.
He’ll have to have a lance,
a special sword of gold …
but most of all he’ll need
good humor a hundred fold!

We’re looking for a knight,
to take on the depressing monster …
who’s been lurking, creating havoc,
where ever he’s shown his face!
This can’t be then just any knight,
something special there must be,
a sunny disposition, a warm smile,
a heart of gold …
to shoo away dark winter’s night.

If you care then to apply today
we’ll look at your application,
the reward will be a thousand fold,
made of smiles and glorifications …
just send to us your photo,
a poem or a song …
we’ll get straight back to you
signed – humankind.”


Written for Last Autumn’s Acorns by Blog it or Lose it. I think we need to look into finding that special knight in shining armor…before the depression monster gets any stronger! 😉

    • sounds that you might be the knight for us! Alas…it is the depression monster with his terrible draconian qualities which requires a strong counterpoint… 😉


        • Too true…unfortunately, I see you’ve taken this little poem and my banter seriously…it was written for a dear friend who is having the winter blues, and can’t wait for spring, I see you didn’t go visit the link. My personal depression monster has long been defeated by my personal knight in shining armor and needs no assistence. Thanks for applying anyway.
