Three Men on a Paddleboard

One mighty lord left his sword for a paddle

The second man came on board has left his saddle

The third man bored to death did not want to be idle

So all three men met, aimed the lake for good times sake...

The mighty lord said, "My sword is even too dull to cut a steak!"

The second man said, "I should hit the waters and loosen the ache!"

The third man thought and grunted, "What the hell? This surely will keep me awake!"


So the three men held their knees firm, stood strong, and paddled...

Then, they exchanged each a promise of content:

"No more dull sword, once fine armour of steel", said mighty lord Kent.

"My horse can rest and play", said the second man from Brent.

"I’m on board on Sundays after church”, promised the third gent,

“to keep me from tedious torment."

...and so, the three men on a paddleboard.

      That looks like fun, Marites. Someone was on the lake on a small raft a few days ago, standing up and paddling.

      Very clever and I commend you for the message sent as well! I also took great interest as this is a fairly new sport I would like to try.

      Amusing and well-written!
