February’s Last Stand

by animalworkss

I stormed my own beaches
To stand against demons
Tyrannically holding my body of works

The bullets reigned down
As bodies found ground
The medics and chaplains feigning for church

So I dug in my feet
To the soil beneath
Committing myself to my goals, thus immersed

Ignoring my flesh
I gave it my best
Till all lies and full forswear left this soft earth

But my job’s never done
So long as there’s sun
Attracting sure death, bound to keep me alert

I’ll stand here in wait
In the name of my fate
As a means of protecting life’s purest curse
