The Prince of New Camelot!
© 1999 Joe Mette
There was a young brave, charming Prince,
Don't let it be forgot!
A man of sport with love of wit,
Who once lived in New Camelot!
He did not want the mantle of his slain
His love was people o'er government,
And writing was his "thing"!
The young boy grew into a man,
With his mother and sister by his side!
With many cousins and an uncle –
Then he finally met his lovely bride!
They had a small private wedding,
There was hope and love inside!
Alas, with his new airship* license,
Time was not on his side!
In a hurry for a wedding,
They flew off that fateful night!
But a few miles from the island,
There was such a fearful sight!
A "jealous dragon" on that dark night
Laid a "smoke haze" on the sea;
And the airship lost control and crashed
Into that "Northern sea"!
Let's remember now that brave young
His wife, and her sister too!
Of a time for hope and caring,
For the time he never knew!
Remember that time of promise,
Do not let it be forgot!
That for one brief shinning moment was
A Prince from a land called New Camelot!
