Dark Minions Of War - Poem by James Vaughn

Slivers of shattered dreams glitter on the path I have chosen.

Sparkling shards of things yet to be confused my sight as I wandered along this path.

Dark birds screeched from high above in the canopy, warning of danger.

Tangled in the spider webs of time I trudged forward pulling these moments in my wake.

Adorned only in a robe of piety, I command those that would deceive humanity.

Fiery blasts in the night chronicle my coming, the twisted bodies laying show where I have been.

The power I seek overshadows the atrocities I have committed against my brothers, as I

ascend my throne; I crawl on the backs of those that have forfeited their life to my greed.

Hoards of unbelievers shout disdain for my actions, their pleas being disregarded.

A corrupted sense of duty influences my desires as the dark minions of the realm do my bidding.
