Match-Stick Men

By

Gavion E. Chandler~

Match-Stick Men, Match-Stick Men,

Mad with soldiers' daily prayer,

Staring out 'cross barricades' horizon, deep into the breach

Where Kings of men their golden crowns

Thorn'd with teeth, bare, iron, raw and red.

Sound forth mighty horns where glory's dark angelic roar,

Sallying them, those Match-Stick Men unto that nightly hour.

There, is a Silence to their stare

Where longings whispered in passions' unspoken truth,

Each and last breath ever riddled with some inevitable truth of knowing,

Drowning in some sense of dread;

There, they like spectres of some forgotten dream

They linger on the edge of Shadows of Days.

Match-Stick Men, Match-Stick Men,

Haunted in that Ever Daunting Silence,—

It lingering long beyond that hallow grave

Where mortal slumber dreams

Laying its head upon well bedded earth,

Here Match-Stick Men cast their gaze

Unto heavens afar asleep with some distant dream evermore.

Oh Match-Stick Men, Match-Stick Men,

The little soldiers that we come to make,

In solemn gratitude we bow our heads

Praying one day, one day true that we may heed and learn

from days of old, to make our amends.

We Pray! We Pray! We Pray for better days!
