Deep breath drawn in

He juts out his chin

Face set like flint

He will not give in

Enemies gather

From near and far

He will not falter

Neither surrender

Hubris, his shield

Anger, his weapon

Madness, his strength

Never to yield

Compass long lost

Morality line crossed

Deafness ensues

Wise council eschewed


Beyond this precipice

Void of protection

Lacking in salvation

Ending in destruction

Despondencey guaranteed

From which

You will not be freed

Chaos is all you’ll see


The Only Edifice
