With the Turning of the Screw

Legend is replete of those who live and die by the sword, all in the name of honor and glory.  It is a noble story.

With the Turning of the Screw
by Michael Doyle

Bitterness born of grief
The warrior knows his relief
Penance or fate
Before the fight comes too late

His sword will again taste
Life ended with some haste
Knowing his own patronage
He comes to reclaim his heritage

He comes to regain his home
The land calling to his bones
His will be the honor and glory
That is a warrior's story

These things run ever deep
For the tears he secretly weeps
As rich as the blood in his veins
Revenge and restoration are all that remains

The sword will rule this land
A noble realm in his command
Where there is nothing left to do
Securing the land with the turning of the screw
