Imagine his surprise
When he rode onto the land
Encountering the town folk
Sitting in the stands

They looked nothing like he envisioned
He wasn’t sure what to make of the scene
Even his horse couldn’t bear to look
Cantering, back and forth, and between

Raising his voice to the village
He needed to show his nerve
For never a knight should ever
Be one without any verve

The town folk cheered him on
Hoping to see him in battle
But this brave knight just couldn’t
His nerves had started to rattle

And so ends the tale of Sir Gulpin
Whose persona did not shine
In fact, the only thing he did, was
Remain on his steed and whine
