Encased in a suit of armour
Strapped to a warhorse
He charges into battle.

He doesn’t want to be a soldier
He can’t ride a horse.

If this is what is written
There are only two choices:
Grab the reins for dear life,
Aim the lance with measured accuracy 
Or release the reins
And jettison the weapon.

In both cases he is likely to lose his head,
Unless he awakens.

In that state there never was a head.
