Saint Michael

Saint Michael

A Poem by Brett Campaigne

lyrics I wrote for my band Pounding Sand

Call on me
I will
on Time
a Weapon at my side
                            Confidence is in my Act
                            My Creed is my Pact

Offer myself
Morality flows from His MOUTH


  Sign from God puts me on track
  Satan             get thee back

Prostrate myself
just to
and Purge
for the winning side.

Archaic language with a modern twist brings this piece to life.

absolute spiritual warfare, and the battle scenes are played out in your words, the reader gets a vivd blast of imagery that works wonders,
Wow. stunning and the form.

this is sharp~ a well honed blade stuck straight through the heart of the human morality play~

I can imagine this to be a very powerful song,with such powerful words.........gritty and raw.

wow you are a master of space. love the placement of the second stanza, love the spacing after Satan in the fifth. love the tousled aerials, flowing more into itself the whole time from where i'm reading!

i envision love drained archangel, broken and bridled holiness.

what's left?

I would very much like to have heard the music your band wrote to accompany this poem. A very...compelling and strong, no strong is wrong better is perhaps strident?

In any event a very well composed piece.
