The Dark Knight

In dark of night

The dark knight rides

His steed a raven black

Encompassed by

A blade array

On this commissioned trek

The quest’s great goal

Lay further up

And further into what!?

A veiled, obscure

And distant yet –

And undisclosed-ed lot

A duty calls

In light of day

Or deepest, darkest night

In long great strides

The dark knight rides

Confronting fear and might

If triumphant then

At quest’s long end

Turn home on wings of pride

If loss and life

The lot to bear

Take it all in stride

But if the end

To bear is death

The dark knight’s brand new day

Those left behind

Take courage by

Dark knights riding, come what may
