Thursday Thoughts - Knights and Chivalry

I wish I could give you a kiss on the cheek - a peck.
At a time when single gals everywhere wonder
if their dreams for a knight in shining armor have gone asunder,
alone you ride as a symbol of our dreams,
stitching our hopes together at the seams.
What will you do when your quest is complete?
I know you'll still behave chivalrous and sweet,
but will you get a so called 'real job'
or become the world's latest heart throb?
You could keep riding and test my nation's hospitality
but I'm not sure that the U.S. would be as kind to thee.
Your first challenge would be sharing the road
with a bunch of speeders who love to squash toads.
Next you would have to find a place with a yard
where your horse could rest (which could be hard).
The homeless shelters don't allow animals to stay
and most homeowners don't have barns where he could lay.
I understand if you don't want to gallop on down
and will try not to change my smile to a frown.
You are certainly doing your share to show you care
if the world is kind, compassionate and fair.
The ingenuitive scrappers here are more selfish
and yet they too are praised for what they accomplish.
May your quest remain noble and many copy your style!
