Chivalry’s Last Stand

I stand in defense of decorum and civility
Spirited debates over a cup of tea
I'm a staunch supporter of the art of statesmanship

To be worthy of my fealty
To gain my unwavering loyalty
You must possess integrity and have a guileless lip

I will demand no less
I will cross swords with the best
To ensure our cause stay pure and true

I will not bend ear to chicanery
I will not follow an evil command
I declare this to be chivalry's last stand

Where does one go when honor abates
To follow someone with villainous traits
No! To such I refuse to pledge my hand

The world is awash in vulgar disposition
It has yielded to every foul imposition
Let valor prevail at chivalry's last stand
