bleeding earth

The war cry sounds across the land,
The hills tremor with fear, melting the sand,
No animal strays, nor walks a man,
When the battle cry sounds across the land

The horses bolt like lightening in squalor,
The sun hides its face and turns its back to the horror,
The wet armor and swords clash in desperate furor
As roaring demons shriek in anguish (and on they holler and holler)
