An honourable surrender (Poem)

Attack is the best form of defence,

as we are but hordes in a warzone

so no use sitting on the fence

in this dog eat dog world

 

Robbers can steal your humanity

Murderers may kill your soul

Liars can lie in the way of the truths

Loan sharks may never leave you alone

 

So you react, piercing others with spears

Blood spilling from your cannons

and you strike them with fear

taking lives by the dagger

knight

But I’ll be damned if to tell you

to raise your swords… not a chance!

Rather lower your words

but keep your armour on guard

 

Get off the horse off arrogance

Fire away the arrow of blame

Take off the helmet of your ego

with coolness, ease off the flames

 

We can risk it all for a moment

if we dare to put down our shields

waver our white flags like showmen

and see who else yields.
