Borrowed Arms

Borrowed Arms

Hoist up a shield
Breath deeply in
Wrap up your hands
With leather and

Withdraw a sword from the field
Of fallen knights and heroes

Borrow a helmet
That doesn’t fit
Put on two boots
Each sized too big

These are epilogues that were writ
After strength and stress of heroes shed

Take a knight’s place
On a beaten path
Rise up to face
A mythic’s wrath

These are the battles up to fate
Duels for the people that legends make
