Commandment Battlement - Part Three -

The Queen's henchmen penetrate professionally the porous perimeter,
as a Phyrric victory I pacified your Lady's legion,
for both in the open,like charriots missing riders,decentralized command,the measure,
I, like you maneuver behind the superior shelter of  Praetorian's protection,

Levy the lurid seige upon my country's citadel as incensed infidels do,
your cantankerous catapaults wasting pawns like pebbles punched by a storming sea,
an officer sacraficed sardonically, intrepidly, 
so to decimate the dormant foots encumbering you,
audacious as an angered asp the timely tactic was,will it hasten your demise to me?

Mandatory machinations amongst this moonlight morass,palpable being Death's caress,
a zephyer like a frosty scythe grazes gingerly our anxious eyes,
tethering the still strategy of mens' mentation,
advancing positions predicted but unproven, an apocolyptic inevitability provoked,
fostering inclement suspense,
justice is now beyond principle,virtue survives only on victor's blade,
incantations made in fire for fear's sublimation,

The common denominator of this prommenade of predation is relentless domination,
manipulating the opposition,perception taunted and haunted
as the fox dictates the chimerical chase,
a vermillion heartbeat,virulent,lucious,with a thin hum of vincibility
lures you to na spot of fragile dominion,
divided forces tend to scream like burning forest
when ambushed along trails of a tedious pace,

When the harp chords chortle tears of tucker from a skulless head,recall with dire dignity
that you were vanquished in strong purpose,
the memory of your egregious exploits will depend on the degree of quater
afforded by my soveriegnty
given to this proud harem of prospective sybils
rescued by a king's necessary nemesis,

J.A.B. - Part Three -

    I think the thing that fascinates me most about your work is how you incorporate the words. They flow so right and they are extremely mesmerizing. They leave you I never thought that word could be used that way. That is something, Justin. Even more so is the message here. These are brazen and mystical words. Great to re-read my friend. Always, Laura

    Am enjoying your epic tale, Justin! Hadn't felt so clever with some of your vocabulary, but I've definitely learned some new meanings to words!! Need virtue only survive on "victor's blade"? Will have to read the next of these to find out! Best wishes, Mikki

    Many words have multiple meanings because they are concepts,especially in regards to jurisprudence - I realised a long time ago that it is very important to define concepts,or words for oneself; of course,often times your personal definition will coincide with the traditional meaning - thanks - J.A.B.
