Hand of Glory

Trying to get back on the writing wagon. Polished an older piece a little bit ago. It is yet still more other bad poetry, but I’m not subjecting you to another Minutes entry for the time being. This one is still simplistic but has the benefit of time and revision over the purposefully raw Minutes. Presented for your consumption, the third part of the cycle begun by the earlier XIII. Where is the second part? Well if somebody asks nicely I may post it as well. Its just that its an early effort that still needs a little refurbishing. Now, without further procrastination…

Hit the pavement
On the ground, start to run
Urban jungle
You’re the blood on the stone
You’re an outlaw
Force your way on your own
Cloak and dagger
Know that you’re not alone

In the thieves’ world
In the sinister alliance
Another bloody block
Another crime of defiance
Knives in the dark
Etch the lines of my story
See by the light
Of my hand of glory

Hear the music
Fists like thunder
Black symphony
Tear the world asunder
Razor edge
Eyes wide with wonder
In the shadows
Feel it pull you under

In the thieves’ world
In the sinister alliance
Another bloody block
Another crime of defiance
Knives in the dark
Etch the lines of my story
See by the light
Of my hand of glory

And in the candlelight
Hear the silence of the dead
I will not be afraid to fight
Beneath the moon baleful and red
And in the whispers of the damned
See the faces of your sins
In your shallow grave you stand
Witness how the devil grins

Running faster
From the man with your fate
Pound of flesh
Repaying your debt of hate
Breath your last
Feel the black pall’s crushing weight
See the reaper
And you know its too late
