Revenant By Design



Stand among the fiery hue
as the flames quite literally soak your shoes.
A mercenary of immunity,
burns of the highest degree just pass on through.

Stand among the ocean true.
Allow the drops to blow and subdue.
A charlatan of security,
blink or not, fear won't misconstrue.

Stand among the English yew.
Each has a unique soul to look into.
An entrepreneur of sanctuary:
born of this meadow rue, no, not you.

Float among the iron blue.
Protect me from this peer review,
my heroine of defense,
just as you're supposed to do.
