The Hammer of the Gods
Amongst the stars, a battle rages
as the mysterious enemy sweeps across the sky,
blotting out the suns and the moons,
despair blackens my heart.
How can we come out the victor,
Of this hopeless spectacle?
Where is our savior, our messiah,
To protect us against this jihad?
Only among men may lie salvation,
Not from the hands of gods shall
Our victory come.
The hammer of the gods may fall,
as their ships crash upon our shores,
But we'll meet them face on, rifles in hand,
And raise a cry, "Valhalla, here we come!"
(I was going for the whole 'metaphor' and 'simile' thing. I probably failed unutterably.)
