FOLLOWING THE LEADER
Sancho this Sancho that
Who fights with windmills
Who does that

squark squark
a knight in shinning armour
scattering chickens

is he serious
is this any life for a grown man
thrusting spears

rusted sails threaten
they call him a crazy guy
behind his back

pah! on my trusty ass i
Sancho Panza follow him

Sancho Panza quotes
[Sancho: Dying is such a waste of good health.

Sancho: They say one madman makes a hundred and love makes a thousand.
Aldonza: What does that mean?
Sancho: I'm not sure. ]

  4. This was fun, Gillena. Is Sancho an Island name?

    1. Jim, Sancho Panza, is the side kick to Don Quiote, in the story of Don Quite written by Miguel de Cerventes. A very old classic.
      Glad I sparked your interest

  5. This made me giggle. I liked Sancho's loyalty despite his exasperation.

  6. You captured the voice of Sancho Panza perfectly. I can see the poor man's bewildered expression in every stanza. This is awesome, Gillena.

  7. Oh I do love that faithful servant, if there ever was anyone more important as sidekick it has to be Sancho... Just like you need darkness to see the light you need sanity to recognize a madman (and deal with him)

  8. Oh, this is an excellent choice of side-kick. His frustration is quite comical.
