Heraldry

Here I am in my rich finery
My silks and iron
My balls and tassles
My boots black as night
Here I am
Upside-down
The knock resounding
All I can see is a sandy sky - the beige heavens - the neutral firmament
And never mind my blue pantaloons
My golden stripes
My rosy bow
He struck me good and true -
CLANG!
I can't feel my hands
One feels like a foot
This is going to hurt
Oh Lord
Do I at least look good
Going down?
