blast site settles
body of King Arthur wakes
unbeknownst to those nearby
essence of Lady Guinevere retained instead

her hands steady
eyes fixate on former Lancelot
crying out in vain to a lover
also transmogrified from the dead

his pulse hastens
hands to hilt to quell the former king
berserking by invulnerability of hate
also horrified from sordid swords of bed

arms outreached she
sprang to embrace her forever love
arms outreached he
sprang to end the life of his eternal foe

Guinevere to redo
the love Lancelot lost
Lancelot to undo
the chaos Mordred caused
