Laced in chainmail, huge, heavy armour,
Longsword ready to fend off failure,
Valiant deeds conjured in legendary fashion,
No one can question their virtue and passion.
They fend off attackers, and beasts of lore,
Through honourable methods, they even the score,
Defending our realm, they sacrifice freely,
Thanks to their efforts, my family sleep easy.
I fancied doing a little dedication to all of our protectors, those beautiful people who put our awareness, safety and well being, before the potential cost of confronting these oncoming dangers. Their valiant deeds make the world of difference to us all.
I speak of those who wield the sword of truth, stand up for the oppressed or neglected, rescue the innocent or endangered, and share their wisdom… the Authors; Songwriters; Artists (like Banksy); Poets; Nurses; Surgeons; Insightful Storytellers; Volunteers; Carers; Emergency Services; Spiritual Guides; Alternative Healthcare Champions; etc.
I could go on and on with the above list, but you get the idea! I also decided to give a kind of “Game Of Thrones” feel to the piece, as I feel that honour and virtue were much more visually apparent and openly acknowledged in times gone by.
I wonder though, if King Arthur was assembling his Round Table members in Camelot, but in the 21st Century, what type of warriors would he choose?
Would my efforts make the cut? …would I be Knighted as a protector of all? Would you? …my mind races at the concept!
Love and Respect always,
