The Friday Night Affair (poem)

Updated on January 16, 2016

Our sentries now well stationed with keen view

The hour nears this refuge we defend

Brave toast to courage with one lasting brew

We legends of tomorrow now transcend


What tales of glory will remain at dawn

To prove that we as men together stood

Upon this ground our spirits’ cause was drawn

We heroes drank of life all that we could


We hear their army as they clamor near

The bleakness for our future fills their shouts

Our doors cannot hold back their wake of fear

Men turned to hens are taken by their doubts


So clear I hear familiar voice from home

Reminding me of what awaited there

Next came the slapping round about my dome

Thus ends another Friday night affair

      This poem has so many interpretations. My first impression was of soldiers, not of what Marlene Dietriech portrays in the video.

      Great poem, Martin. Any piece of literature that can conjure up different images and meanings is a good one.
