...maybe he left the oven on... maybe he needs to find someone to pick up his kid from school...
maybe he's afraid he won't be in time to DVR Duck Dynasty...
...but we are looking for his greatest concern. The one thing that weighs most heavily on
his mind. All right -- what do lines 17 through 18 say?
Goddess, allow this aged man his right To be your beadsman now that was your knight.
So... he's asking the queen... something.
He was her knight, but now, even though he's retiring, he'd like to continue to be her...
Whatever that is. Perhaps the queen is seriously into charm bracelets.
Regardless... he's not trying to teach others to praise the queen, that's for sure.
It's not about receiving the benefits of retirement... it's more about the queen than it is about himself.
It's not about returning to service as a knight, now that his... bead business is taking off.
And it's not about worshipping the queen. He respects the bejeezus out of her, but this

is being able to continue serving the queen.
But still... the "Duck Dynasty" thing is REALLY starting to bug him.
