Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
King Arthur: [after Arthur's cut off both of the Black Knight's arms] Look, you stupid B@st@rd. You've got no arms left.
Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: *Look*!

Black Knight: 'TIS BUT A FLESH WOUND


A pin ***** in the heart.
just a tiny thing.
but enough to make me worry.
These sort of things oft get out of hand.
I patch it up the best i can
and throw on a smile or a grin.
and say "i'm fine."

As time goes by the ***** remains.
never quite healing.
words and actions sprinkled on with no thought
create a tiny festering wound...
I slap a bandaid on it
and a smile on my face
and say "i'm fine"

The wound grows of its own strength now.
the slightest slight, a forgotten thing
and i feel the gaping hole open.
leaking out feeling.
I feel my heart grow cold.

I fight the Coldness.
This is not what i want!
I place a warm towel around my heart,
And a warm smile on my face
and say "I'm fine."

'Tis, after all.... just a flesh wound.
