When the Knell was Heard


When the knell was heard
The smell of hell fell upon
Fear unmasked from its shell
The bell of uncertainty

When the knell was heard
The shores cleared
The roads deserted
The fear of the unknown

When the knell was heard
the mightiest trembled
the weak shuttered
the village left to its knees

when the knell was heard
morbidity flew
the stench of cowardice grew
the mightiest sound full of mystery
reined and ruled the hearts of every
standing crew
when the knell was heard
