Amaaazing poem! I liked the symbolism how the "hero" blindly chases his
goal not thinking about the consequences. The pursuit of one goal may be
destroying something else and we seldom see the price being paid.

Love this poem, it depicts the truth in the Arthurian battles. We always
see the noble knight but... what happened to his sturdy steed? Not all
losses in battle are human losses and not all heroes are human heroes. The
Horse is the forgotten stone we step on to reach the castle tower. Perhaps,
thinking of this in todays terms, we could say that the horse is also a
person- an individual considered to be of lesser value than the knight.
Some of the previous comments have been absolutely immature. If you don't
understand the poem read the credible comments and THINK about it.
