Bastards, Brawlers, Broken Bones!

This short Original Dark Poetry piece is about being strong in the face of adversity!

Title inspired by Game Of Thrones episode, “Cripples, Bastards And Broken Things”


Bastards, brawlers, broken bones

Take them all, stand tall alone

Bleed, the bodies, black and blue

Courage cracked and ego’s bruised

Split the skin upon their skulls

Blood flows down and  sight will dull

Don’t live a life upon your knees

Nor yet another yes man be

Too damn proud to live that way

Suck up the lies, do what they say

Though all the hurt may bring on tears

Still rather that than live in fear
