Rusty and Duke

The following was written shortly after Rusty's death - A Brother's tribute
 

WHO ARE THESE MEN

THIS BROTHERHOOD OF MEN

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, THEY WILL TAKE FLIGHT

GLEAMING STEEL DRAGONS REAR THEIR RESTLESS HEADS

THEY BREATHE FIRE AND SMOKE AS THEY SOAR HEADLONG
 INTO THE BLACKNESS

A BROKEN WHITE RIBBON THE ONLY SENTINEL

AT BLINDING SPEEDS, IN THICK FUEL FOG, THEY CROWD EACH OTHERS TAILS

ITíS A WELL PRACTICED RITUAL OF TRUST

PERFORMED WITHOUT FEAR

IN THE MORNING LIGHT THESE MEN WILL BE WHOLE AGAIN

ALONE NOW AND NOWHERE THEY WILL DRINK, LAUGH
AND WASTE THEIR BEST LIES

THEIR HEARTS RE-CREATED

 

DEDICATED TO ALL MY LOST BROTHERS DDMC
