Month: February 2015

Along the road

Riding on the dusty road
    searching for his prey
Carriage comes, unaware
    of the danger of the day

Riding on the winding road
    King’s men close behind
Heading for the horizon
    a day between them still

Riding on the longest road
    Hands bound tight
No escape, no reprieve
   Not this fateful day

Riding on the final road
   Sun setting on his time
Heading for the gallows
   Paying for his crime
