The grim soldier!

A myth submitted to the site by Ruby


Chapter 1
I lived in a castle tall, with many a many a wall,
the turrets so high, that they reached to the sky,
and there were no clouds at all.
Chapter 2
I fled from my home to the docks,
and the seagulls and the old rocks,
I leapt onto the boat, and listened to the quote,
that the captain made about clocks.
Chapter 3
We were nearly there, with the wind in my hair,
I cheered a great cheer, as I drank some beer,
and stared at the island's lair.
Chapter 4
When we docked, I felt like we were locked,
in a tiny cage, and with rage,
the others I had blocked.
Chapter 5
Then we found a town, and when we went down,
I chopped of someone's head , and then they were dead,
So I cried and I had a huge frown.
Chapter 6
"No, never" I cried, but I still could not hide,
the sly grin on my face, that gave me disgrace,
and what is more the cell was not wide.
Chapter 7
Days went by, the time seemed to fly,
the prison bars, grew so large,
and the guards would seem to always lie.
Chapter 8
Finally, they let me out, they thought I was innocent with out a doubt, it all seemed so good,
but then I got lost in a wood,
and there were so many creatures about.
Chapter 9
At last I got home, and found out, I had gone to Rome,
the ships sailed by,
and how glad I was to be sturdy and dry,
and the waves created big bits of foam.
Chapter 10
I am back and I hope you agree,
there is a different man you see,
I have changed my ways, and that took days,
"Oh, and could I have some tea?".
