I’ll ne’er put one foot in France – Author Mark Andrew Heathcote

… Ladies, I’ve observed the eternal night

Dressing up these shadows bathed in starlight

But with every footstep taking its rightful place

Monitoring, you at a snail’s pace.

Something, I couldn’t begin to equate…

Kept me dragging my heels earthly weight

As you glided along with moonlight interlace

I, couldn’t chart the stars you’d, far too much grace.

As I am neither a chivalrous knight

Nor my Lady of this intrepid ghostly night

Am I a saint, as I am just a Paige of the lance

I’ll ne’er put one foot in France

… But prays me, I’ll find my own, sunny romance.

Who are you? Are you a brave knight? A warrior brandishing your sword, ready for battle. Are you a dreamer? Away with the fairies, losing count of fireflies whilst searching for Neverland. A goth? Who feels right at home with the monsters hiding under the bed, who loves to dance a dervish with the devil on the stroke of midnight. Or perhaps you are a dragon-slayer? Or a soul snatcher? Basking in the heat of an eternal flame. Or maybe you’re a witch? Hiding deep in the woods, practicing dark arts beneath the light of a full moon.
