Prompt Monday :Old Masters

"The only gold I've ever known,
It all belonged to the giant Longbone."

This line came from Steeleye Span's "Longbone" on their Sails of Silver album. Here are links to a live version and to the lyrics .

I always liked the wistfulness the king has for the gold he will never have. Plus, I think Longbone is a great name for a giant. The obviousness of it amuses me.

So now for a new line for our writing prompts.

"About suffering they were never wrong,
The Old Masters."

Have fun with it.
