A Hellish Fray

Ebon banners darken the day.
The earth quakes ‘neath their marching feet
When demons fight a hellish fray.

Upon a field of churned-up clay
Mailed knights and armoured devils meet.
Ebon banners darken the day.

Brave men stop a moment to pray
Then plod through muck and hell-born heat
When demons fight a hellish fray.

Lines advance as trumpeters play
And drummers pound a savage beat.
Ebon banners darken the day.

Many an honest soul fall prey
To fell beasts and wicked deceit
When demons fight a hellish fray.

Black swords hew and spiked scourges flay
As light’s bright host faces defeat.
Ebon banners darken the day
When demons fight a hellish fray.
