Formation

The hoplites hit the field unfazed
despite the shafts and swords that grazed
the dented shields and pitted helms
they donned to dominate all realms.
On blood soaked clay so firmly packed
from lusty legions that attacked
momentum, like a dory hurled,
increased to change the growing world—
the slashing, stabbing, screaming fray
continues on until this day.

Hello :)

So much is said itself with the right verbiage... Even chaos becomes interesting to read when it is written by you!

Last two lines -- stunning!
