Ode To The Grey

Ode To The Grey

"Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live and die on this day
Live and die on this day

~ from the film The Grey starring Liam Neeson; for more info visit: HERE

Canto I (Laments)

There was no answer in the sky
Although it lay open wide
Ages passed, millions died
No one knew precisely why
Mute meteor showers aside
No overt signs were ever espied
Humans from nature could not pry
Secrets that her cruelty hides
While obvious truths go on denied
Ponder this and then apply it

 Canto II (Amends)

We are no better than the wolves
Or mythic beasts with cloven hooves
Still any stain a stoic removes
Until by right — our wrong improves

Just a fantastic poem, full of primal imagery and mythology. Fantastic!

By the way... did you stay until the very end of the movie, after the credits?
