Song of Sir Cedric
A Fantasy Poem
There was a time when, on IRC, I used to go by the nick SirCedric. Everyone would always ask me who this knight was, and I never had an answer to give them. So, being the creative genious that I am (*cough*), I wrote a poem that describes who this fictitious character was. I always modeled myself as an upstanding citizen on IRC—the perfect gentleman—and I still "play that part" (though I go by a different nick now: Stingray) as I still claim to be The Protector of the Underdog.
Part I Honor, above all else; Distinguishes the true warrior From the malignant knave. It keeps his soul on the Side of truth and justice. Integrity, the strength within; Aligns the true warrior On the straight and narrow path. It gives him character and Builds his style. Pride, the warrior's wisdom; Without it, he knows not What he can accomplish. It develops with time and victories And marks the noble warrior. Courage, the outward strenght; Marks the warrior as fearless, He will fight to the death. It is the warrior's weapon, Intimidating his opponent. Valor, the warrior's armor; As white and pure as Cherub, As hard and strong as diamond. It is he who is the hero, Risking his life for others. Part II Riding out of darkness, Sir Cedric art atop His noble steed. Wielding his sword and shield, The knight art victorious; He hath vanquished the evil. Sir Cedric art honorable And returneth to his kingdom, Symbol of truth Bringer of justice. He hath led thy good forces Into battle, defeated thy foe And rescued thy damsel. Surely we doth respect thee, Sir Cedric. Part III Oh great warrior, tell me Of thy deeds, How thou hast defeated the evil dragons of the east, How thou hast conquered the evil spirits of the south, How thou has vanquished the evil forces of the north... Will'st thou not? Honor, Integrity, Pride, Courage, Valor -- So singest Sir Cedric!
