Today I am a warrior wench with armor, sword and shield.
I go alone to fight upon the frosted battlefield.
I fight no other warrior and no army keep at bay.
It is a horrid demon that I fight this dreadful day.
Her wings are filled with shadows and her hair alive with fear.
I tremble in my armor as I feel her drawing near.
I call upon my King this day and hold his banner high.
I sing his anthem bravely and I give my battle cry.
“For glory, love and honor!” I shout and draw my sword.
The demon leers and flaps her wings. She doesn’t say a word.
We leap together, fighting. The battle’s joined at last.
She claws and bites, I hack and slash, both working pretty fast.
I feel my foe breathe on my neck. I hear her dusty laugh.
My blade lifts up and with a flash, I cleave her head in half
And as I leave this field of woe and go to nurse my pain
I know this is a foe that I will have to fight again.
For demons can’t be slain with swords, as everybody knows,
But, for today, I’m free of her and all her fears and woes.
