Of war, of war this day I write,
Of battle and blood that is shed in the night,
Of cries and screams of blood and pain,
I wish this night to become day's light.

The pain, the pain of the killing pursuit,
The scars etched upon berserker brutes,
The hate and fear of fire and lead,
I see the fruit of the reaper's loot.

Oh fire, oh fire and destruction's start,
Oh copper and lead seeking the foes' hearts,
Oh flesh and bone you sought to rend,
And as their souls depart,

The devil sees your new art.
This is a poem I wrote for...:iconpassionforpoetry:'s Rememberance Day Contest

Wow. This is great. I wish I could say more than that, but I can't really put it into words.

What I think attracts me to it is how you used specific language to make the poem sound "old" like a ritual being chanted by a witch after a bloody medieval battle. It gives your poem this folklore feel that I really like.

Other than that, I like it just because it's grim, dark, and sinister. Hope that helped.
