Pen And Ink

Pen And Ink short poem

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then where does that leave me
A pen for a brush and ink as my paint
And the words are what you all see

If the pen is mightier than the sword
Then a warrior I must be
With a cutting remark and sarcasm bold
A shield of prose for we

And if the shield wall buckles
Our hearts start sinking
I’ll find some words
And we’ll all start singing

Our hearts will soar
High above the crowd
The Lion’s Roar
So deafeningly loud

And when all is won and said & done
A history I will write
Of how the English Lions
Regained their lands, that night!
