Short Story Slam 2

====================

An old man with a hat,

With a horse that was fat,

Rode into town one day,

Looking somewhere to stay.

====================

He looked forward and back,

There it was, an attack!

The man ducked, oh so late,

Will the sword end his fate?

====================

Skies opened with thunder,

The sword, torn asunder.

The man breathed a large sigh,

He thought it was goodbye.

====================

His enemy was gone,

His shadow was forlorn.

The man looked, walked away,

Finding a place to stay.

====================
