Best Poem of Ian Jobst

The Cripple Who Is Whole

Destruction is beautiful
'tis but a start for purging of soul and of blood
it is not Noah's arc, but instead the great flood
Destruction is terrible
it obliterates with neither empath or care
It destroys those whose loss we can't bear
Destruction is blissed
it does what it will without heart or mind
It rides amongst all with senses all blind
Destruction is proud
It believes it's infallible and immune to all rules
It has no time for whom it believes to be bigots or fools
Destruction is the pit from which we all came
We and destruction think and act and see...

On The Field Of Battle

I awoke to a bloodstained sky
on this day I twould surely die
I donned my helm, and sword, and wooden shield
and with this step my fate was sealed
as I stepped from my pavilion tent
I beheld a sight so gruesome my heart was rent
of all my men only half survive
most felled by bow, or spear, or deadly knive
my job was to recapture the siege
