Being

Those ones and those zeroes
Paint glorious pictures
On our screens
In our minds
That bring us closer
To being
The things we don’t understand

Tithe

thehouseofbailey

By Scott Bailey © 2015

This is my tithe
The part of my life
That I give to my lord
To survive

My uses are his
My flesh and my blood
So I am here
On this field

Shoulder to shoulder
With my fellow men
Shields edge to edge
Spears raised

For the right to go on
Feed my wife and my son
To stave hunger away
One more year

Death faces us down
With it’s bloodstained gown
As the line ahead draws
Ever closer

The enemy jeers
Clashing their spears
Moving their wall
Close to ours

And I see in their eyes
They are bound by their tithes
To kill for their lord
Just like me

Conquered

thehouseofbailey

By Scott Bailey © 2015

Shining silver line
Whirling axes high on the hill
The pride and strength
Of the Saxon’s lands

They had hammered back the sea
Eaten up the road
Crossed the kingdom wide
With deeds of valour bold

Unbeaten and unbowed
How could they know
This would be the day
The kingdom was brought low
