I lay my armor down

and he his crown

Upon the bar room table

We sat down

And drank a round

Talking as we were able

About lovers lost and battles fought

Telling the stories of old fable

Tales of steeds and good deeds

Of History and victories

And romantic mysteries

Now that we’d shed our labels

Paused identity brought him to me

The whiskey drowning pleasantries

Revealing that we were to be

More than a warrioress and her king

Moonlight shining in between

The curtains as we paid our fee

Illuminating for us to see

Drunken desire set free

Of all the things of earth and sea

Why fate brought you to me?

It is an eternal mystery

This will be a new tale

That all fair maidens sing

There is nothing stranger in the world

Than a warrioress and her king.
