Tuesday Poem: The Hero - Movement 2: Last Stand

The Hero

 Movement 2: Last Stand

Atop the bodies
Strewn akimbo
Awkward arms stretched out
Broken pleas for mercy

He stands

He falls

Pleas for mercy
Broken arms stretched out
Atop the bodies

A.J. Ponder

Another cheery little number, the final in the series might turn up next week - heck it probably will and if you're still with me after that maybe, maybe something with some laughs.  Of course if rallying dirges are your thing, The Hero - Movement 1: Corpse Road is lying in wait in this little linky here http://anafflictionofpoetry.blogspot.co.nz/2013/10/tuesday-poem-hero-first-movement.html

Here I am ten oclock on a Monday night wondering if I should trust to a timer - and why not?  Let's see if I can convince the blog Tuesday is a good day to post.  After all it is the best possible day to catch all the Tuesday Poets at their watering hole right here at the Tuesday Poem.

Also my short story, "Friends" finds a home "Baby Teeth" -
a remarkably horrible, and occasionally funny collection of stories by well known authors in the Speculative Fiction community.

  1. Hmm I look forward to the humour though you do write your corpsy ones with a twinkle. Congrats on the short story. :-)
