Poetry Entry 1: As Ares Rides Ahead of Us


March in step

Side by side

Row by row

Column by column

Lift your knees

Stare straight ahead

Don’t look back

Prepare your weapons

As Ares rides

Ahead of us

We work hard

To defend ourselves

And conquer enemies

Who have given

Us death mourned

Of those soldiers

Who fought right

By our sides

As Ares rides

Ahead of us

And take our

Plunder and payment

To enrich ourselves

And our allegiance

Nothing stops us

Nothing breaks us

We are strong

As warriors are

As Ares rides

Ahead of us
