A Bastion of One
and post notes and photos about your poem like Janis Thompson.
The wounded warrior was a bastion
that fought the enemy with bloodied side.
He truly was a Knight to gaze upon,
a Samson who defended right with pride.
The enemy continued its onslaught
against an army made of only one
who with a sword and spear so bravely fought
until the moment he was overcome.
With eyes toward the stars he faced his end,
still hoping beyond hope to win the fight.
He prayed that reinforcements they might send
for he would not survive throughout the night.
As he lay dying on the castle grounds,
he smiled to hear the galloping knights’ sounds.
