Old Times Gone - Poem by Devin Lasker

Gone is the time where honor ruled all
Where all one had to do was admit defeat to be spared
Now we are like dogs to death’s beck and call
No longer are we for the people whose problems we would bare

Instead it is the greedy and power mad we follow
Killing and maiming to see other men cry
As they sit on their thrones empty and hollow
Smiling a jackal’s grin as their enemies die

But my sword I shall lift no more
For my eyes have seen too much blood for ignoble dreams
I shall repent my killing ways upon this sandy shore
Never again to do the biding of evil fiends
