Brilliant Brushstrokes

Viking Longboat
Viking Longboat Viking Longboat

Behold, with dreaded wonder, 
This sight of danger thunder! 
With eyeballs whitening;
Ears with lightning, 
Cleaving peace asunder

Silent through the night; 
Yearning for a fight! 
Without warning, 
daybreak dawning, 
Toxic fear and sheer delight!

Gone, but then returned, 
Lessons never learned
This deadly cough; 
Can’t pay it off
Respect must be, well, earned

Through purple haze, defence, 
From ditches and a fence. 
We can deny
And fortify
Then drive the Vikings raiders hence!

Yet keep, with pride, this ship
This lightning-sharpened quip
For stealth and speed
Are what you need
To quiver Anglo-Saxon lip

A bright but angry purple and pink sky in the sunset over the dark Viking Longboat, empty and moored at the foreground shore
