Virtue

Strength is godliness, He whispers,
Placing the shining sword in my hand,
Honor is the way to Valhall,
Courage shall win the Land,
Thrust and parry, slash and wait,
Raise your shield,
With pride, face your Fate,
To die with Courage and Honor is good,
To die in battle is best,
Valkyries come swiftly, ravens splattered in Blood,
Odin teaches me many things,
About life, and honor, and keeping my Word,
For my purse may be heavy with golden rings,
But please do take it, it's worth nothing,
Nothing compared to my Name.

2005 Justin J. Carlson
