185 (who?)
the cavalry have forgotten
their men in the mud
and i fear we are
running out of ammunition,
i mean
we never had much
to begin with

we've not got the fire of a
thousand horses but maybe
two will do.
i don't know where this came from
i just like the word cavalry
nice to say and all

(I'm surprised I never commented on this)

Congrats on the daily deviation that was awarded to you on this piece. It's definitely worth the recognition.

The whole thing flowed very well (fast-paced in my head, but great) & is very sound. I think this would be very great to read aloud.

I like how you rhymed 'ammunition' & 'ambition'. It's a beautiful & wonderful rhyme - it adds more to the flow.
(And then the three lines after it are dear god perfectly amazing)

I also like how you mention 'two' twice in the last stanza. It's slightly, very very slightly, repetitive & adds more to everything. It's great.

The whole poem is very great & beautiful. Definitely something to be proud of. :heart:

thank you. (personally i was never very proud of
this piece, so when it was picked i was a little
surprised and - admittedly - a tad bit disappointed.
what i like of my writing tends to be the opposite
of what other people do. it's strange)

thanks c: i've been meaning to record some of my stuff
out loud, i just haven't gotten around to it yet.

thanks again haha. i only like rhymes when they're
internal/not overdone, so i hope that when i do rhyme
things they don't come out sounding cheesy or anything.

You're very welcome! (I can understand - people tend to like the poems of mine I'm disappointed with, haha. I love your poetry almost all the same. I haven't came across a poem of yours I haven't liked yet.)

You're welcome! Please do let me know when you do. :heart:

You're very welcome! Internal rhymes seem to be much more interesting, less confined, and just overall better than rhymes that are at the end (especially ABAB rhyme scheme. I can't stand that).

(pilfer through my scraps. they're pretty terrible haha)

okay c: i'd probably post a journal or something.

Awesome! I can't wait to hear one. :heart:
