Battle of Time

The clack of a bowl
Upon carven wood
The sheathing of swords
Metal glows in the distance
A reflection of the past

A warrior in meditation
Awaits his time to die
Though live the day through he shall
Still he waits his doom
As some wait for life

Honor! Victory! Courage!
This is the warrior code
But ancient and obsolete it has become
Like the swords of tradition's lore
Replaced by modern guns

Arise, oh ancient ones!
Arise and meet your death!
For tomorrow has come to claim
The souls of yesterday
Upon the plains of today

Arise, oh scarred warriors!
Arise and meet the day!
Live by the code given to you
By generations past
And die with honor this day

Swords and guns fall to the ground
Covered with the blood of their share
Stand none but a few
Those that died with honor
And those that ran away

For tomorrow will be hunted
By the day that comes after
And tomorrow will become today
Covered with the blood of hereafter
Who remembers the past?
