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.
