What do you say, comrade?
Shall we go to war?
Will we fight for honor,
Or is it the slaughter you adore?
Will we return in triumph,
Or will our blood be poured?
Will they flee in terror,
And return nevermore?
Will they stand and face us,
Or be crippled to the core?
But first ask yourself, comrade,
What are we fighting for?

Erase the slate of dreary tears

[I guess I'll use up a bunch of my random scribblings]

Erase the slate of dreary tears,
Clear your memory of fears;
Drink the wine, spend the time
To find your mind is in a bind:
Sleeping soundly without a scream
Of severed secrets sealed in a seam,
So slit the curtain from the wall,
Reveal the gory scene to all.
Shine like a seashell in the sun:
With a glint of ease and a glimmer of fun
Near seas of dreams and skies of light,
But brought to ashes in the night;
Shattered and scattered, they flit away
Above the ocean of dismay.

Horizons near the endless maw

Horizons near endless maw,
Accompanied by sky, an open jaw,
Wishes are made; Monkey's paw,
Leaves the layman's mind in awe,
The macrocosm we know, still parturient, yet alienating,
To the subatomic unknown, ameliorating,
Though it follows a pattern, you can say it's unplanned,
Including our existence, which we have yet to barely understand

Hazy lies, foggy truths
both mean trouble
for the sleuth.
Searching a photo
black and white
Could it be?
It just might.

Man that's terrible. This is what happens when you ask a person with no artistic talent to write a poem. Anyway....

Golden seas, in the sun
Shimmering bright;
A warm delight
Until the day is done.

Enbistled slumpforious grubles.
These words are certainly not fictitious.
Certainly not troubadours of incoherency,
Bursting with pride, yet surreptitious.

Keep Yourself Alive!
the stereo blared,
My Queen record spinning;
loud as I dared.
A blast from the past,
well, it has fared;
The grooves of old music
meant to be shared!

Keep yourself alive,
no one else w[/i]ill
Towards the pits of death,
do not dive
For if you fall ill,
You will see the doors of death.
So I advise you, dear traveler,
Keep yourself alive.

A point goes to Wal for getting my Queen reference. Therefore it will be his line that I answer.

In the shadow of the mushroom cloud stood a man.
His face a spectral, pallid, ashen colour,
His features proud yet bland.

And the man sighed, and as he saw the great wreckage,
Which once had been his life.
Which was torn asunder by explosive armaments.

Am I really that stupid?

In the shadow of the mushroom cloud stood a man.
His face a spectral, pallid, ashen colour,
His features proud yet bland.

And the man sighed as he saw the great wreckage
Which once had been his life. A collection
torn asunder by powerful explosive armaments.

(there's a very good reason behind my using the explosive armaments part, of course, I will reveal no detail about it).
