Crest of the Dove


In days of old when Knights were bold and wore bright and shining armor

When Kings were more that mortal men the Knights would die for honor

Here we meet our hero the good Knight “Sir Doobie Dubious”

He was a champion in the sacred order of the Crest of the Dove

He championed for the fair maid” Mary Jane” he championed for love

In the kingdom was a castle in the castle was the King

The King sat in the throne room on his throne high above

At the table sat the good Knights of the Crest of the Dove

Will the good lord “Sir Doobie Dubious” succeed in upholding the creed

 Of the sacred order of the Crest of the Dove

“Sir; Do you mean to defend yon fair maidens honor?”

Yes I believe I will indeed I would bode well to charm her

My lord I beg you succeed in upholding the creed and yon fair maidens honor

Alas as he mounted his steed he started to bleed having pinched his balls in his armor

He let out a scream and to all there it seemed his voice was two octaves higher

The King did decree” what’s wrong with thee” and re-assigned the knight to the choir

 The Knight made a plea but had to agree he did not succeed in upholding the creed

To say nothing of fair maiden “ Mary Jane’s honor

            ah, then we can go chase King Arthur down right here in the heart of Somerset. there are many stories to be told about Camelot and the Knights who were under orders from the Great King Arthur.
