Invasion

“Pirates invading? Really, truly?”

“Yessir, wild and unruly!”

“Will they invade come the low tide?”

“Yessir, shall we go run and hide?”

“What? No! I will stare death in the face!”

“And be spared by God’s good grace…”

“Perhaps, unless my time has come.”

“But sir, that sounds oh, so glum.”

“What shall we do with the women folk?”

“Why, man, surely you joke!
We will send them to the neighboring town!”

“Unfortunate,” replied he with a frown.

“Tell the men to hoist the flag!”

“Yes! Do not let morale drag!
We won’t go down without a fight!”

“Aye, but blood will be spilled tonight.”
