Dawud ben Jibriel - Fighter Poem

Dawud ben Jibriel
fallen in Fall Crown Tourney, A.S. XXXIV

Clouds fore gather overhead
Portending an air of dread
Elementals sieze the day
Who will chance Crown Tourney day?

Stepping forward, one who shall:
Doughty Dawud ben Jibriel
Mivanou stands at his side
Facing what the fates betide.

Dawud cahllenges a knight
Malachi of Brightskull hight.
Fighting skills sorely tested
By the Rus Dawud is bested.

Next to face with battle board
Mighty Duke of Holdingford.
O'er the field Sir John holds sway
Brings an end to Dawud's day.

Sweet Mivanou dries a tear
There will always be next year
When Crown Tourney comes in spring
Who knows what the fates may bring?
