When A Good Man Goes To War

All is fair in Love and War,
Beating Drums as Demons roar,
But Demons run, when they stand before,
The Good Man that goes to war.

Tank shells boom as bullets soar,
Evil runs freely out Hell's door,
Angels weep as they look towards,
The Good Man that's gone to war.

The night is lit with explosive galore,
As many men fall to Hell's door,
But 1 man stands for what he's for,
He's The Good Man that's gone to war.

Millions bear the burden of death,
As the air is filled with burning flesh,
Overcome, he can stand no more,
The Good Man, that's fallen in war.

As he ascends, to Heaven's door,
His body lie, upon the tor,
The Devil forever fear's the rancor,
Of The Good Man he's killed in war.

This is actually the 1st time I've ever shared a poem, so I really don't expect much, but I've been writing poem's in my spare time for quite a while now, and have accumulated quite the number, so I figured I would share one and get some criticism from other's on how i can improve my poetry.

If this is a poem about doctor who the episode a good man goes to war in season six of the new series than I would love that. That episode is so sad, if you haven't seen it which I hope you have, make sure to have a box of tissues with you the rest is well spoilers! :). I love the part about the angels especially if that is a reference to the weeping angels which wasn't in the episode but cool reference and the part about rising up and falling to new lows, awesome, just awesome, and I hope that ths is about doctor who because if it isn't than I would be sad.

This isn't based on Doctor Who, but that is where the inspiration from the poem came from. I used to be a HUGE Whovian. David Tennant and Matt Smith were my favorite Doctors, hehe. After I heard that poem in the show, i wanted to write something simular on the topic. That was also my favorite episodes of Doctor Who with Matt Smith.

That is really cool, I also love David Tennant and Mat Smith. A Good Man Goes to War is such a sad episode but very well written, so I see why you like it. I am a HUGE Whovian Although I am a little sad that this poem isn't based on Doctor who :(
