What is up with all the fighting when we could be loving?

Interdiction: Gabriel Addresses

the Ice Queen and Scoundrel

 

As the Ice Queen and Scoundrel

Unleashed their hounds of war

The Heavens ruptured

And an angel of the Lord

Descended to Earth

Upon a stream

Of Heavenly brilliance

Touching his feet

Upon that most sacred ground

Of No Man’s Land

 

The Archangel Gabriel stood fast

Sandwiched between the two armies

Unleashing the Wrath of God
Upon both forces at the same time

Slicing arrows from the sky
And thumping the soldiers

Upon their helmeted skulls
With the flat

Of his mighty broad sword

“Wait! Wait! Wait!

We should be loving one another
Instead of sparring
Like spoiled little campers!

If we must,

We can continue to fight

Until the bitterest of ends.

But, heed my words:
Love, love,

It is all about love!”

 

Gabriel brought with him

Small chunks of pure sulfur
That he ignited with his torch
To hurled skyward
Creating a maelstrom of brimstone

Driving terror deep into the hearts

Of man and beast alike

 

Horses and mongrels

Fled their fiery dooms

And countless warriors lost heart

(Having never seen burning rocks)
Fleeing the field of battle
Like frightened children

Upon seeing their own shadows

In the mid afternoon sun

 

“I bring a message
of peace and love
From the one true

Lord of this realm
And, I will turn water
Into wine so that we may drink
To our newfound peace
If only we can cease our bickering

And start loving

One another

As brothers and sisters.

Amen...”

 

Afterword:

 

This is an unofficial continuation of “The Scoundrel and the Ice Queen” by the Ice Queen of the Vampires and John A. Stussy II.  Neither of the authors necessarily agrees with this addition.

Lol That was really cool! ^^ I like this little story; it's nice and simple. :) For some reason, it reminds me of the book that I'm reading called "Lamb". Lol Page 26: "Oh he'll tell me uselss angel stories -of how Gabriel disappeared once for sixty years and they found him on earth hiding in the body of a man named Miles Davis"... Haha! Sorry, I know that was random. Anyways, I really did like this poem. The ending stanza was an excellent way to finish it off smoothly.

Ironically Yours, Blade and Blood

P.S. Why must people fight? Is it ignorance? Is it a desire for power? Or is it just because it's not a sin? XD

Wow! That was a great poem! I am glad you brought up the topic of how we fight each other when we should be loving and helping one another...I think that more people should think and act this way than is being done, it would do the world a great service. Most of the fighting that goes on in this world is about politics and religion, the two main issues. Great Job on the poem!

Very interesting and evocative write. "Cry HAVOC and let slip the dogs of war." as Shakespeare said in Julius Caesar. I like the cosmic Armageddon portrayed here. It is a theme with which I have some familiarity from a historical and religious perspective. Nicely written.

its alright... the thing that i get confused with is this... the angel guy wants peace so why is he hitting soliders on the head with his sword... or killing them or whatever??? Isnt that hypicritical.... i know hes trying to send a message..... or whatever but i think its kinda lame.... i hate religion and thats probably why i didnt like the content... however i liked the way you wrote it... like your style and imagrey and the story was there... so yeah it was good just not feelin the religious vibe... and i think you wrote better stuff then this...
