The Warrior and the Fool

Stand face to face

Fool red faced and screaming

Warrior stands still

One hand on the weapon

Fool waving arms blustering

Rage rage rage

Draws weapon raving waving

Telegraphing every movement

Warrior draws

Knees slightly bent

Watching waiting

Fool is rushing swinging wringing

Metal upon metal

Fool wearies with ill timed attacks

Warrior deflects, defends, conserves

Fool attacks clumsy and fatigued

With a single strike

Warrior scores fatally

Nothing changes

Warrior remains steady

Weapon cleaned and sheathed



Waiting for another warrior

To offer a challenge
