Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

War is just a means tae a’ end Deaythe’s the price o’ life. Famine comes upon black horse fillin the gullet o’ Deaythe’s strife. War is just a means tae a’ end Deaythe’s the price o’ life Power swings War’s blood red swuird the weak an’ the old suffice. War is just a means tae a’ end Deaythe’s the price o’ life. Conquest raises mighty bow crownin’ Kings with rare delight. War is just a means tae a’ end Deaythe’s just the price o’ life on pale horse the banshee rides binna matter what your fief. In deayth we fertilize the field Life is aw an’ Deaythe's real. *In the style of Robert Burns

I find it amazing that I was considering writing about the four horsemen the other day. I was reading about the horsemen in Revelations. Good luck in the contest and thanks for a wonderful read. A. W. Nutter www.freewebs.com/abcedit

I too have enjoyed reading Burns in past days and you've captured the Gaelic (?) beautifully. Wanted to thank you for your suggestion of kereoke ... smile ... I'm headed up to my son's for a week on the 24th and the grandkids have a little band set up so we'll have fun with that ... I'm really not all that "down" as my mood shifts blow like the wind ... smile ... thanks for your support, Deborah !!
