one by one they fell, in numbers countless. / Beowulf and Grendel's mother weird; / King Arthur of the Britons < Mordred dauntless. / The noble set to lie low by the feared. / Sir Gawain got his neck nicked by the Green; / Coeur de lion was matched by Saladin. / The virtuous fall finally to the mean - / one never roots for stalwart paladin. / The good and pure must fall; they always do / and there the story ends.  We never hear / just how the victor cheered and had a few. / But there the difference appears in clear; / We tell the vanquished knights' bold deeds and glories. / No one wants to hear a villain's foulest stories.
