rust on the edge, of the sword, of the warrior

screamed to him of his charm now fading

pushing him to give up on his reign

forcing him to feel his bones now feeble

yet, the warrior, remains a warrior

heading to perform his will, his duties

not the rust on his sword

no old bones to shake him

he stands to lead, to fight

till the time, his death shall embrace him

the warrior remains
