ever with me

They are ever with me
iron clad and clanking
shiny on the outside
rusty blood within.
They bring spears and swords
and for sport
they prod me with pikes
and jibe with halberd.
They are raucous with their insults
and their battle cries,
they are nameless in anonymous armour.
But they announce their allegiance
with their coat of arms
and sin is their name.
This crowded battle ground
is littered
with their kin -
an angel army
carries my flag.
