From: Winnipeg, MB
Last night, I gave some thought to how in the world I'd approach another AAR. Readers have seen the game start months 11 million times, so I don't think I'd simply present a straightforward re-hash of major things going on. But I haven't hit on a good alternative. Maybe I'll write in poetry form. I'm sure Forumites would find that scintillating, gripping, moving reading.
In Heroic Hexameter?
No, it must be Chaucer (with translation):
43 A KNYGHT ther was, and that a worthy man,
A KNIGHT there was, and that (one was) a worthy man,
44 That fro the tyme that he first bigan
Who from the time that he first began
45 To riden out, he loved chivalrie,
To ride out, he loved chivalry,
46 Trouthe and honour, fredom and curteisie.
Fidelity and good reputation, generosity and courtesy.
47 Ful worthy was he in his lordes werre,
He was very worthy in his lord's war,
48 And therto hadde he riden, no man ferre,
And for that he had ridden, no man farther,
49 As wel in cristendom as in hethenesse,
As well in Christendom as in heathen lands,
50 And evere honoured for his worthynesse;
And (was) ever honored for his worthiness;
No matter how bad a situation is, you can always make it worse. - Chris Hadfield : An Astronaut's Guide To Life On Earth
