But death hides in my maw,
Which you see, continually yawns.

Not So Tough

Not So Tough
I am the flesh of the man standing tall.
I am the blocks of the citadel wall.
I am the core of the hard cannon ball.

What am I?

Thank you Paul for your submission!

Seen from behind, I’m as black as coal;
Black as the Death, a ride from me stole.

Reborn I am, in my enemy’s role.

What am I?

Thank you Paul for your submission!
