A Song Of Swords

A List Of Blades In A Poem

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 15 days ago 1 min read


The idea from this came because I put a Hawkwind album on and the first track was "Song Of The Swords". I also like the concept of George RR Martin's Iron Throne which is constructed of swords, because no ruler should ever be comfortable in their seat.

These are a few blades that came to mind, below is a wiki list:


A Scimitar Will Slash

This Blade Will Make Blood Flow

In A Most Vicious Flash

A Final Fatal Blow


A Cutlass, Pirates Choice

Fight, Cut, And Thrust On Deck

Treasure, Pieces Of Eight

Cutlass Swings, Chops The Neck


Caledonian Blade

The Claymore Is The One

Macbeth, The Bruce, Wallace

Wielded This Sharp Iron


This Is The Song Of Swords

Deadly Blades Into Words

    Outstanding sir, I like how you draw inspiration from songs and music, and I especially like swords and blades (weapons recreation enthusiast).

  • Oh! I thought this would be a list of swords like Excalibur, the sword of Gryffindor, Durendal, Andúril, Dawn, Ice... Great poem though :) xx

    Unique topic for a poem- and I loved the insight, “No ruler should ever be comfortable in their seat.”
