I’ve tried this once before
and I got it so very wrong!
This time with the artwork I’ll stay,
trying to be as one!
This one inspired
so many thoughts in me!
Thoughts about being united
about being at one with thee…
About earth that was left unblighted!
There once was a warrior
brave and strong
he moved along never caring
about any people he would do wrong
as his heart was in the sharing.
Along he moved,
from place to place
never once thinking ’bout tomorrow!
He knew that there was always more
than one life feeling sorrow!
The serpent’s trail along he followed
brave and powerful was he!
With sword and shield he set out
for some reason, protecting me!
I never asked for this sacrifice!
I’ve always tried to play life’s game nice!
But still he went on to defend
my honour in a game that could never end!
Left and right he swerved,
right and left again,
following the serpent’s trails
to the very end!
I stood there, watching, quite bemused,
knowing I should say stop!
Knowing his sacrifice was for me,
that nothing this could top!
The fight was epic, no one can say
anything but this, I’m sure!
The warrior and the snake went on
fighting for ever and ever more!
It was the kind of battle that
myths will speak of forever!
How they attacked, swerved, fell back
attacked and stopped, they never!
Forever and more the two went on
I don’t know who will sing the song?
Of the epic battle of good and bad,
of the loss of the warrior that made me sad!
Who will tell the story,
if not described
in visions by those whose strokes we live by?
This was inspired by and entered at the wonderful Alias Jinksy In Tandem #5. I really hope she/he/it will forgive me for the abuse of her/his/its’ meme a few weeks back!
