Killing Non Believers

It was not the epic battles It was daily skirmishes Gallantry ready at the helm Sword and shield raised daily To squelch and silence the infidels He was a Christian crusader A hero, brave and indoctrinated To not appreciate or tolerate any religion Except his own, which applauded his killing ways He spilled their blood gladly With no remorse or thought of his own comfort He gave up twenty years of his life To please his mother and father Killing his way through non-believers Not realizing their faith was every bit as solid as his own.
