Sellsword (my poem + audio)

Dejected sellsword
dying in some foreign land
for a cause I hated

I thought about this while walking in the mountains. I did the audio on the spot.

My poetry is but an attempt to record feelings. All poems are written in one go. I do not tend to their aesthetic appeal, as that requires extra processing which detracts from my truth in the moment.
