Dramatis Personae: An injured knight who is a prisoner of war. As he watches fellow prisoners getting executed, he decides to act luring and killing the guard. Time is of the essence as their freedom is slipping away. Following his given oath, he defends the helpless even if it means his death.
Setting: Castle prison
Hands bloodied as he drops to his knees
In pain, he claws, and screams
We must move before someone sees
Reality is the nightmare to their dreams
Face covered by a crimson mask
Thoughts of freedom dance in his mind
Unshackled, but no time to bask
A way out is what we must find
Take my hand and follow me
Be prepared to fight, and stand tall
If you desire to be free
It is time to answer the knight’s call
Let’s run for the castle gate
Live or die; we shall meet our fate
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
