In a kingdom where everythingís quiet
With no war, no cataclysm, or no storms,
A wild beast emerged who had as a diet
Human flesh in any shapes, any forms.
Stomachache and asthma sickened the ruler.
Just his cough could scare people to death.
And meanwhile a fiend according to rumor
Was about to commit a bloodbath.
Right away the king announced proclamation
That the monster we would have to defeat.
If a hero can stop this predation,
A princess heíll marry as royal treat.
In that troubled and desperate nation
Right across of common straightforward roads
A sharpshooter lived in abomination,
The one who breaks communitiesí codes.
Folks and whores lied on a floor in his mansion.
In abundance they drank liqueurs with mead.
Troubadours read there decrees as mentioned,
Took the shooter upon handling the writ.
After clearing his throat monarch uttered:
Moral values I wonít tell you to learn.
But Iím sure that you gonna be flattered.
And I know that the princess you yearn.
And the shooter then replied: please, donít bother,
Have not doubts that a beast will be dead.
Even though you are a very good father,
With your daughter I donít want to be wed.
But the king insisted: no more discussion.
Otherwise, you will be certainly jailed.
He replied that even with repercussions
I would have to be eventually bailed.
They engaged in a dispute long and loud
While the monster killed most women and chicks.
In conclusion king at last disavowed
Own order after days, after weeks.
Still a princess sits alone in a palace.
Evilís killed and lifeís again back in peace.
Thatís a story how king was embarrassed,
How literally stayed on his knees.
