what the world wants
from all knights of Light--
helmets shimmering like the sun
armour glittering golden
shields deflecting all sin--
belies the true renown of the Crown.

what the world does not want
to see of the King's anointed--
eyes still lusting under the sun
tongues still waxing all but golden
skin still struggling with sin--
belies the truth we are only holy
because of Him.
