Purely for self amusement really.


The Warrior.

The warrior came with axe held high
And surveyed the battle, with a cold clear eye
Death was no stranger to his way of life
A constant companion, through trouble and strife

His choice alone a warrior to be
For to die like a hero, unfettered and free
In the heat of the battle, no time to reflect
But to thrust and to parry, think not of regret

These things would come later, in the dead of the night
To haunt and to tease him, and laugh at his fright
But he feared no mere mortal, while he walked on this earth
For to be a true warrior, was his right from birth.

Hi Graham,
This is a good tribute to a brave warrior!
I like the last (but one) two lines the best:
"
These things would come later, in the dead of the night
To haunt and to tease him, and laugh at his fright"
