You've spent your whole life here
A simple existence raising steer
Unbeknownst to you there are powers
Schemeing agianst one another for hundreds of hours
And to achieve there end
Yours and thousands of others lives they will spend
Then on christmas eve
A rider comes and says all strong men must leave
A crusade has been called
Many lives have been stalled
You're given armor and forced onto a ship
After a month the foul water you wish not to sip
When it seems you'll never get off of the boat
The lookout calls " LAND!! " and young men begin to gloat
One boy said " A hundred infedels will fall at my blade "
Within two days six feet under he is laid
The glory you were promised was a lie
All you do is watch young men die
One year into your tour you hear word Saladin has gathered his forces into one big mass
With three hundred thousand men and all there gear they'd stomped down all living grass
The king in jeruselum sent out the call
" All armed forces are to assemble outside the wall "
In three days there is a wall of spears
No man speaks his fears
The two huge forces begin the clash
For the nearest enemy you dash
With in an hour all men in your unit but you are dead
At this moment not much of a memorial can be said
Ten men surround thee
Before they attack you scream " For God, king, and country!! "
Two rush your front
You throw your spear but it is to blunt
Then you pull your sword
The first one, his throat you thrust it toward
The next right threw his chest
Of skill this is the ultimate test
Six more fall by your hand
You're so tired you can barely stand
With one last slash the seventh falls
Your time has come you can no longer defend these walls
When three blades rush
Your blood begins to gush
With your last breath
You complete yet another poetic death
