Exercise 190710b

In raiment splendid

and armoured majestic,

they cling to

their costumed finery.

Well, let them;

our blades will

cleave them all

with ease and

neither discriminate nor

offer any quarter

apart from when

heads and limbs

are severed in

field’s full duty.

On sodden bloody

fields this day

shall their woeful

fate be told

by our oaths

as sworn blood

brothers of sword.

Let them perish

and rot as

crow bait, fit

station for their

high offense to

our honourable cause.

In blood today

shall our sweet

blades taste, and

thus to victory’s

summon we answer.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
