The four horsemen

The four horsemen:

Conquest on his horse of white,
Stood victorious over all in sight.
When the lamb broke the first four seals,
Three brothers will follow as the apocalypse is real.

War came on the horse of blood red,
Calling for millions to become dead.
Without love he carries only greed,
Playing the politicians to make more bleed.

Famine on his dark black horse,
Cover the land in hunger of course.
Causing drought and over population,
Taking women and children through starvation.

Death rides the horse of pale skin,
Dragging along Hades with him.
Sometimes his job is easy as we lose faith,
But he is a coward for me he won't face.

I have read the good book a time or two,
Sinned many times and I have stood true.
Made by his hands I can bend the brass bow,
Will I see the pearly gates only he really knows.

So I'll live this life as I have in the days before,
My children will see no Famine even when I'm at War,
The Conquest is to make sure they're healthy and safe,
Until the day Death steps up……………………….

And takes me away from this place!!!!
