THE POWER AND THE GLORY

 

THE POWER AND THE GLORY

 

An oath is sworn allegiance proud

Some things simply not allowed

Divulging Secrets being one

This forbidden must nay be done

 

Higher through the ranks I climb

The steeper incline do I find

Till vertical the graph becomes

My promotion seemed finally done

 

Chevrons blazing on my sleeve

Innocent then and quite naive

My pips quickly turning sour

Wondering who you really are

 

Swelling then the ranks on high

I watch my comrade’s daily die

By my orders... nothing changed

Chains of command still remained

 

My orders sent, from on high

Without question, do or die

Deleting do the result the same

Insert and. Delete the names

 

The numbers fewer so elite

Who dears wins, more deceit

In unmarked graves their bodies lie

For queen and country they dids’t die

 

Each one providing another rung

All are heros, and all unsung

Climbing higher up the chain

I reach the top, resolve the same

 

To penetrate this Jericho wall

And witness as it tumbles, falls.

Safe within so they believe

Never have they been deceived

 

Complacency was their undoing

Unaware of what’s ensuing

Impenetrable as their numbers

They believed as they slumbered

 

Those Heros spoke of, all unsung

THEIR ranks I am now among

From the silence first a murmur

Begins to shake their terra-firma

 

That trumpet rally “last post” call

Begins to crack the fortress wall

All in Unison our battle cry

Not in vain dids’t we die

 

A tumultuous cry from within

Their wall now gone, all see their sin

Ours was not to reason why

Simply just to do and die

 

Vengeance truly is not ours

For it is God’s....His the power

Brimstone brewing, His eternal fire

Awaits these sinners upon his pyre

That my friend is so deep, if you dropped it, it would take an eternity to hear the echo.

I dont read to comment, i read bcz it captures my soul. Wisdom unfolds many a truth that knowledge fails to disclose.

Brave hearts!!! Keep writing Po.
