unvalorous

a handful of horses
offer safe passage
to the course entered
by you, in search
of your legacy.

a warrior, you are
ready to ravage
and claim as yours
the conquest of a lifetime,
or just,
a brevity in victory.

a ribbed sort of cage,
covering that which seeks
entry,
protects against
the breeding of proof
and valor.

you are a fool
for knowing not
your reputation
shall be your achilles heel.

we live
in a decidedly
trojan era.
