The Way of Swords

A warrior knows the  ways of war.  It’s that fighting soul so often missing in these times.

The Way of Swords
by Michael Doyle

The way of swords
Knows its own destiny
Like an apple sliced and cored
It is the way of history

Always pulling at us all
However we may try to forget
A true king will never be in thrall
Though he may live to know regret

Men of savage cunnery
Fight as if with God's will
A forsaken chance at becoming legendary
Though a brief moment in the tale

The battlefield knows its own
With no place for fear or doubt
Though the brave may be whittled to bone
Victory or death are the only ways out
