It was beneath the apple tree
My darling girl once said to me:
"Will you be fair? Will you be true?
And can I give my heart to you?"
"How dare you ask!" I answered back.
"What is it that you think I lack?
Of course you can, my maiden fair -
How can you be so unaware
Of just what lengths I'd go for you?
It pains me that you never knew!"
Her face went soft and with a smile,
I knew that in a little while,
This battle would decide the war
And she'd be mine forever more!
So I persisted - drove it home -
I wouldn't leave this point alone.
"Face the dragon - face its flames -
Smote the wind and dry the rain!
Climb the hills, and cross the brooks;
Make songbirds from those deathly rooks.
I'll slide the rainbow down to ground
And all those tales that there abound
Of gold and silver - treasure sunk -
Will come to life and I'll debunk
Those doubters who did not believe
And underneath this apple tree,
I'll fight and make you mine at last -
A noble and a knightly task!"
And then my love was struck down dead -
An apple fell upon her head.
This is astounding Ben as always. It moved me in that you were laying your ass on the line then I just laughed at the end because the apple just killed the moment - I could just picture the unfortunate case of events going down paparazzi at the ready for you've been framed lol
