goal (YAMHB*)

and this once more he said to the dying and the dead
“there’ll never be a sanctuary here”
and the rest of us in tears, dark drowning in our fears
looked to those behind to provide cheer

there were curses in those days flying round the maze
wherein we faced the vagaries of time
and as the matter stood we were doing all we could
though not a one of us was in his prime

precious blood we shed as we followed fortune’s thread
through the darkest corridors of doubt
but sometimes so they say the weak will win the day
and we came upon our quarry with a shout

with battle colours high we swore we’d win or die
and chased the cursèd monster to it’s lair
while those around us died we held on to our pride
and took our bloody vengeance on it there

though vengeance may be sweet in the battle’s heat
it never once could cure an ailing soul
and caught beneath the weight of a cold uncaring fate
we mourned the ones who never reached our goal

*Yet Another Mock Heroic Ballad

    • The Dragon and Redemption

      the wingèd wyrm flew into sight
      all on the field quailed
      some swore to fight the loathly beast
      the rest of us just bailed

      and when at last the brave ones won
      we knew the time was right
      to damn them all as traitorous scum
      and claim WE’d won the fight

      The Battle Scene

      they came at us with eyebrows raised*
      through fear our senses numb
      we raised our guns and with a shout
      blew them to kingdom come

    My last comment doesn’t apper to be in English! What I meant to say was, when I posted the link and then hit “post comment”, it did not appear so I reposted it and didn’t know if it would still be there after I hit “post”.

    I think I was too busy laughing at the eyebrow comment to post correctly.
