JUDGE COMMENTS "A very poignant poem/story with good flow and rhythm that captures war in a by-gone age of chivalry and the very essence of the grief and waste of life it produces. Through the words of the king he imparts to the reader the grief experienced whether such war is won or lost. It also seems to carry a sad message that applies down through the ages, to this day and time, of the futility and sorrow caused by war on loved ones left behind,widows and orphans. ...and the feast that the dead give to crows, and carrion birds, is heart-rending. (A couple of typos do not detract from the quality of the write.) Congratulations."
