Battlefields are far
more dangerous when you use
petals as armour.

    sorry, i couldn't help myself. I know this changes the 'defence' of armour into a lure for attack, much like a trojan horse. Anyway, i like your poem, it gave me pause for thought.

    Wow, Keira. Your poem shows how much power words can wield . The pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword.

    Good luck with this gem!
