The Horde

From the Sky our Hero falls

sword in hand

preparing to face

the menacing marauding band

🌑

The Earth shakes under foot

as he lands

Slowly he rises

and with his full height he stands

🌑

Shadows hide

from the uncompromising stare

Creatures look to the sky

wishing for salvation in prayer

🌑

There he stands

granite amongst the sand

Observing the horde

charging across the wasteland

🌑

With a terrible cry

the massed ranks hit their foe

carnage and devastation

they are ready to bestow

🌑

What happened then

no sentient soul knows

Our Hero was still standing

the horde never arose
