Last Stand

Last Stand - Horse Frightened by a Storm - E. Delacroix (1824)
Horse Frightened by a Storm – E. Delacroix (1824)

When a horse is on his knee
don’t shoot him till he stands
one so proud, a final plea

is his to stay your hands.

Will you drag him when he’s dead
Should you tear his flesh and mane?

Leave him there to shed

his glory in the rain.

For when the clouds have risen

his figure leaves his voice
painted in the prison

of life without a choice.
