They stood listening to

The beating of

A silent drum.

Faced with a moment

Before battle.

Thump, Thump, Thump

 

A cold breeze,

Tension as thick as the

Morning fog and an unwavering

Presence of silence.

The moment time

Held its breath.

Thump, Thump, Thump

 

Faced with the enemy

They sent out

Their troops with

An unmistakable calmness

Of warriors.

Thump, Thump, Thump

 

And oh how they fought

When everything was

The opposite of favorable,

To the sound of

The silent drum.

Thump, Thump, Thump
