Tin Soldiers

Tin Soldiers

We stand
Vulnerable to your attack
You emblazon your mark upon our skin
Summon the frozen sword!
And seek this enemy within

Lightening, fire and blaze once more!
To drop our ash upon nature’s floor

Our steely knives can’t kill this beast
While ravenous upon their feast
Will this frenzied foray end
Before we’re free to rise again?
