Daily poem #3

Halt!

Hast thee

lost thy senses!

Cease before the king!

Indifference to the noblest crown

is punishable by a swift beheading.

 

Nay!

I cannot!

for in stopping

I would create peril

for both this noble kingdom

and all who dwell in peace.

 

For a dragon follows my path

its maws are razor sharp

teeth like massive greatswords

his anger volcanic

I fear

disaster

 

Laughing, the guard did not budge

his loyalty swayed by none

save the kings judgement.

To this day

his bones

remain.

  1. This so far is my favourite of your work that I have read. It is so descriptive that the images clearly play before my eyes. I have a love of all things past, but especially knights, dragons and other mythical creatures. You have so clearly told a story in so few words. I love it, great work by you πŸ’–
