Photo prompt: WHAT PEGMAN SAW
Reconnaissance crew returned, solemn, reporting the ease with which to take the harbor .
Every able-bodied man taken by ages of war of revolution. Sent to the front lines to fight and die.
All that was left were women, children, and feeble old men.
Raising sails, by cover of darkness our ship glide across the moonless sea; salty waves breaking ashore.
First light shown our newly hoisted flag. Trading peaceful presence for war.
Our homework done; that pristine city would be under my rule by noon.
Anyone welcome to linkup! and by the by, YOU have no idea how much I want to play with the Pirates of the Caribbean: humor. Showing great discipline , indeed. Until next time. Keep writing! Shandra
