The Cowards Choice - Poem by James Day

'Tis by the cowards hand
That I no longer stand
Steel flashed and thrust
There to lie and die
sprawled silent in the dust.

The light to fade
From eyes now so afraid
While none a finger raise
Oh coward flee you murder me
But none shall sing your praise.

'Tis the cowards choice
To use the blade without a voice
No hero on that day
Such fear the fear you fear
That you take my life away.
