Poem-A-Day #113 : Poem for Tuesday

Poem for Tuesday

Today Constantinople fell

Mars himself caught fire on the field of battle - his cloak went rust then black
frozen on the spot the reaching vines of darkness covered the globe

Hang a rope over one reaching arm - the scales of justice knotted on the ends - the day will be for sacrifice

How much does all the blood of Byzantium weigh


Tiwaz Rune - An invocation of the Norse god of war and law Týr
Tuesday derives from "Tīw's Day"the day of Týr
