To what strange darkness. . .

"Return your sword to its place, for all who will take up the sword, will die by the sword."

a stark darkness
has befallen upon the land,
as the men of honour, 
were looking the other way. . .

blinded by might,
blinded by faith
accursed swords slicing lives,
lives of men like you, like me,
beaten to death at the break of dawn
yet, not a word from the one
at the helm. . .
or his blind henchmen

to what strange darkness
has the men of this land fallen to,
at the break of the day?
