The Morte D’Arthur

This here is the tragic tale of the death of the noblest of kings; King Arthur. This here is a tale death and betrayal. This is a tale of kingdom torn apart by sin! If only these noble knights had followed the good word of our lord, then this terrible tragedy could have been avoided. But alas! Men sin, it is in their nature. The Kingdoms of men are fragile and precarious – only the kingdom of God is eternal! Take heed of these warnings lest the same tragic fate that happened to the Kingdom of King Arthur happen to you.

Oh how the mighty and noble have fallen! Sir Lancelot has succumbed to the temptation of the flesh, and in doing so betrayed his King. Like the dull-minded hungry larks to fowler’s chaff, Sir Lancelot all but flew to his Queen’s bedchambers. What he did to her body, I cannot say, as I am in no position to tell of such things! But, be sure, it is truly a mystery that she did not bare many of his children!

Alas, the other knights at the round table are no stranger to sin. Sir Mordred, full of envy and wrath did try to usurp the throne from his king. His covetousness knew no bounds and lead to his death. These sinful knights brought tragedy to their kingdom! Heed my warnings, for if you succumb the temptations of this life, you very well might find yourself quickly heading to the next! Like the larks  found out in the fowlers sack, death, sin, and violence come hand in hand. If only the wise King Arthur had made room at his round table for a preacher well versed in the words of our lord, he could have avoided this terrible tragedy!

One thought on “The Morte D’Arthur

  1. Sparrow, your words ring true. Too often people succumb to pleasures of the flesh and forget about their eternal salvation that is granted through good behavior and service to our father and his Son. In my experience however, the real sinners tend to be women. When you claim “But alas! Men sin, it is in their nature. The Kingdoms of men are fragile and precarious – only the kingdom of God is eternal! Take heed of these warnings lest the same tragic fate that happened to the Kingdom of King Arthur happen to you,” are you speaking of men as in mankind? Or are you saying the male sex? Because is you are suggesting the latter, then my agreeing with you stops there. While we are not perfect, my life has been filled with sinful women, most notably my wife. I have never known anyone to sin like her, not even the Knights at King Arthur’s table. So while I would like to agree with you, I would change the language of what you’re saying to better elucidate that it is women like my wife who bring ruin to kingdoms most of the time.
