Fights Worth Fighting

Quixote fought windmills for dragons
Because of battles he missed
I too would fix their wagons
And for them have oft wished

But lacking even these to tilt
I have created in words and stanzas
Semantic enemies and ills
To fight without Sancho Panzas

Disarmed but imbued with pointless ire
I have dreamt of fighting and delighted
But all of my Saint Elmo's fire
Is unknown, alone and unrequited
