From rocky beginnings and a cumbersome haul
A royal troller sports now a crown and all.
And bereft of good stock, waiting to fall,
Hang ample samples upon fortress walls.

Lo! Hundreds of eyes—rode to the ring;
Blindly his dark course swift following!
Smoking pipes, clashing, they brazenly sing:
“Beware the bitter end never to bring!”

So shackled to colors and with shots all along
Falls the warrior one with arms apart strong.

And a very deep throat so familiar with sound
Knows well the dark hell of that wet, silent ground.

Here's a re-write to smooth out some rough edges:
******************************************

From rocky beginning and a cumbersome haul
A fisherman sports now crown and all.
And bereft of good stock, waiting to fall
Hang ample samples upon fortress walls.

Lo! Hundreds of eyes—rode to its ring;
Blindly its dark course then following.
Smoking pipes, clashing, they brazenly sing:
“Beware the bitter end ever to bring!”

So shackled for life, with shots all along,
The warrior one falls with arms apart strong.
And a very deep throat so familiar with sound
Knows well the dark hell of the wet, silent ground.
