Swordsman Served

there was once a man who was skillful with his sword

but in the comfortable absence of war he had developed a debilitating languor

then one day an enemy he had previously defeated came to exact revenge

bursting through the door, catching the man off guard


the enemy not allowing a minute for response and the man too slow to reach for his weapon

he was only afforded a split second to regret before watching his enemy shoot an arrow to his chest

before moving in close to decapitate

  1. Languor is man’s true worst enemy, after his own ego.
