Duty Worn

monument-140320_1920

Winter soldier
Made of steel
Why do you march
Through lonely fields?

Mighty knight
Thy baron’s shield
Why do you swear
The oath to kneel?

Fierce viking
Through tempest’s lull
Why do you steer
Your raven hull?

Son of Mars
In his gory task
How do you keep
your fearless mask?

Timeless trooper
By duty worn
How could you not
Come undone?
