Honor Befalls Me

A squad of cavalries turns up at first their flag flutters at every angle proud and their poor fate stubbornly reversed the youngest one of them blows the bugle Next, day strips itself of night, boisterous the survivors step over the fallen to the summit, wounded but victorious the bravest one sags all of a sudden That happens and will do, when justice is sliced it was worth it and it will since God pleads It's a cause for which our lives are sacrificed as blooded swords are put back into sheaths Honor befalls me, who made it public in a lonely sonnet, epic and lyric
