Rivals

Standard

Broken fortress fights to stand,
Mother Earth reclaims her land
 Forceful life and stone collide,
each clinging to the divide
Pastoral field caught between,
this silent war goes unseen

Rebellion

Standard

Traitor’s monument,
warrior’s last stand
Badge of defiance,
duty’s sacred call
After the gallows,
his plight unfinished
An isle divided,
old grudges remain

Wallace Monument, Stirling, Scotland (It’s a little tough to see, but look for the tower on the hill)
