Knights of the Pain Table

A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

King Arthur (Richard Harris) Sings of the Mystical “Camelot” as the Knights Return

 Camelot

All eyes looked upon their heaven through the weeping clouds.    Parting through the mist they saw something of material sublime.     How long was it since they held the sight of their home, the Castle of Camelot?    By order in Camelot, the summer still lingered through September.    The buttress’d walls stood on the Northern hill as the soft wind caressed the green leaves of the trees.

The Knights of the Pain Table heard the horns and trumpets sounding upon the air most soothing soft.     Twas as if Merlin had cast one of his necromantic spells.      How Beautiful their beloved Camelot.

As the brave Knights rode through the blessed gate, their Beloved King,  King Arthur,  and their Beloved Queen,  Queen Guinevere,  graced each Knight with a rose plucked from the garden of Camelot to welcome them home.       White doves flew above, as the Castle was alight with the Royal Cheer.    Each Knight hearkened to the compassionate voice of their dear King.   Upon their return after each journey, King Arthur would sing of their cherished Camelot.    To hear his song  click here.

It’s true! It’s true! The crown has made it clear.
The climate must be perfect all the year.
A law was made a distant moon ago here:
July and August cannot be too hot.
And there’s a legal limit to the snow here
In Camelot.
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September
In Camelot.
Camelot! Camelot!
I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But in Camelot, Camelot
That’s how conditions are.
The rain may never fall till after sundown.
By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
In short, there’s simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot.
Camelot! Camelot!
I know it gives a person pause,
But in Camelot, Camelot
Those are the legal laws.
The snow may never slush upon the hillside.
By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.
In short, there’s simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot.

Though each Knight may fight to the death each day, no one could take away their “Camelot”.   King Arthur then spake to the Knights and told them of the feast tomorrow in their honour.   Their favourite new Minstrel would be at Camelot to sing and they would all make merry. 

The Knights of the Pain Table retreated to their rooms and tonight they slept silently as they dreamt of their “Camelot”.
