No one

No one ever wore any armor
No one ever carried cold steel
No one ever wove chain metal
Or presented their crest for real

No one ever rode a horse
Ceremoniously raised their lance
To lower it for the offered scarf
Chivalry never spoke through romance

No one ever heralded trumpets
Pennants never waved in wind
Oaths were never sworn in blood
There never ever were such men

about 1994
