“DOG SOLDIERS” ~by Martin Gedge


 

 

POEM “DOG SOLDIERS” by martin gedge

Image may contain: night and outdoor

Unleash the beast the devils son
let terror reign the lands
sniff them out and get your fill
and join the pack in clans
pump the veins and rush the blood
the hungry hearts of gore
strike the fear into their homes
and feast until the core
dark of night the howling moon
like eyes of demon horse
upon the wind that we will ride
and follow on its’ course
take to hide for shadows gloom
upon the walls of town
nestle deep without a peep
god sake don’t make a sound
the hunt is near the fangs are out
the teeth so steely fine
in quiet take the children wake
to cry like serpents wine
they pounce upon the feeding air
and strike without remorse
the gathering in howling ring
and fill the night with force
every crisp and crescent moon
across the countryside
to wait for sun and off you run
to places you can hide
but death beware you hear the hoofs
like soldiers on platoon
through the fog a soldiers dog
will fill your bloody room…
