Ancient Warrior

Ancient Warrior

carved by an
ancient craftsman

on a pottery shard,
dressed to kill,

but now is gone,
for all the good he did.


his helmet on his
foolish head,

a shield he wore,
but now he's dead.

two spears he had
to go to war


and now he's dead,
will fight no more.

the battle that he
could not win.

death comes for all
i've heard it said.

and long ago
it came for him.
