#Maydays Prompt – Battlestations


Today’s #maydays prompt it’s time to capture an epic battle.

The adversaries eyed each other off across the battlefield

It was going to be epic, it was going to long

Both sides fancied themselves

They came with determination and purpose

To pulverise each other.

The standoff was momentary

The warrior in the Iron Man costume lunged forward

Arms flaying about

Intent on landing the first blow.

The old grey battle weary knight

Held him off, parrying with his arm

The Iron Man was knocked down

He called for help and his trusty aid

The brave and fearless Prince William

Leapt to the fore

Arms and feet both swinging.

The handsome Prince at the strategic moment

Deployed his deadly weapon

His snotty nose he rubbed against the grey haired knight.

The knight recoiled in horror

Prince William retreated, aware of his deadly strike

The Ironman was on his feet coming in for the kill

But the grey knight knocked him from his course

He fell again, calling for his Prince who charged in

But was pinned to the floor along side the Ironman.

Both warriors were stuck when:


“ Grandad will you stop making all that racket with the boys? Jack get up and leave Grandad alone, William wiping your snotty nose on Grandad’s arm is simple disgusting.”


When their mother left the warriors three

Looked at each other.

One sniggered to the other

It was fun they all agreed.

So now it was time for the grey haired knight

To ride off into the sunset

As his trusty Toyota awaited.
