The Chair

I have seen kings fall
knights gone cold
I have seen evil
in both the young and old
Days when blood and sweat
and the stench of death
were too much to bear
for those who saw their last breath
I have seen the ones
with murderous rage
begging for mercy
at the pearly gates
I have seen those
who made peace
tried their own sins
and took death with ease
But what they know not
is what lies in wait
they think they rest in peace
with souls unafraid
I see things they don’t
I see him standing there
All those who come to me
are damned to the reaper’s lair
