Young Damon Kirby


Master John Inchingham            


To his first royal tourney
Rode young Damon Kirby
(Quick Damon,
Lean Damon,
Keen Damon-oh),
For to fight for the crown
And to win great renown.
Dare-Damon.
Green Damon.
Doomed Damon-oh.

He challenged two knights
To test mettle and might.
Brave Damon.
Why Damon?
Bap! Damon! Ow!
Though valiant he battled,
Their blows made his teeth rattle.
Duck Damon!
Whack! Damon.
Down Damon-oh.

But youths heal quite nicely
And, in time, fight more wisely.
Rouse Damon.
Proud Damon.
Rise Damon-oh.
So perhaps, next Crown Tourney,
We shall shout, "Damon Kirby!
Sir Damon.
King Damon."
Some day-mon-oh.
