Powder Tower

By  Xcircle · 1 minuteBack to stories

Just before the battle. Men coming off boats.

Clattering metal.

The battle has started

Musket, shot, BANG

Knights fall one by one

Cannons, grapeshot, BOOM

A man beside me is ripped in half

speed, blitz, rush

Pirates join the fray

Swords, armor, shields

Ready for the fight

fortress, emplacement, defense

A tower sits upon the hill

Stone, brick, mortar

Men smash the gates

ticking, silence, nothing

The trap has been sprung


The once gray sky is orange

fire, explosions, heat

Incineration ensues

run, hide, retreat

Shattered, broken and defeated.
