Shake the Spear

Take no joy in watching men die my lord/ 
I regret to spare my life in pairs of your words my king/ 
The gods have come to save us from the bull/ 

All these years he ruled/
Pulled for sacrifices/
Our skin have no spice but spies/ 

Disguised in blameless skins dancing celebrations for we live in fear/  
Only a fool will challenge the gods with his pen your highness/
Speaking against his acquaintances/  

My heart wore lion skins with care/
So shaken/
I longed to shake the spear for long/ 
The soil spoke of thirst/
For I dreamed to plant peace/

I fear to fear my fears/
I shook the spear and extreme anxiety fell down/
Among all the soldiers you left 
lives only Words my king/

I see no cure in planting war between lips/
For your noble words 
I sacrifice my life to spare these lips/
Until your ears flatter all spoken words/

    Beautiful imagery, Raymond. I love your ending: "Until your ears flatter all spoken words". Would that it was so. Thanks for welcoming me to PoetrySoup and for visiting my page. Peace....Sam

    Yes really, you are a talented writer. I am curious whT you favor / For me it is a bit distracting but the writing is so good I can over look it.
