And the angel
Raised his sword above his head
Crying out to all the others

What was said was not heard
Yet a whole army followed

Out they went
And ever since an emptiness
No trumpets drums or banners

Can fill  And still
No one was sad to see them go

Their presence diminished
For the rest of us

The sense that we and only we
Are all that matter

There is so much more that matters than just ourselves. Well done & enjoyed. Chris

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.
