MAN OF WAR mixed media edition on canvas with original hand-embellishments by the artist (limited edition size of 333 with 33 artist’s proofs)
MAN OF WAR Once there was a place for me back home When I was born An infant of Rome Childhood was gone in a breath of warm air And full age came in the coldness of crusade A man of war Required to slay with the slaughters in Spain To see what I must see and live what I must live A man of war A victor of virtue A victim of remembrance As for my sons of blood will find my heart in death As way I bleed in spiteful regret For what one does is blameless to hate For what one does is fadeless in fate And some things Be it righteous or wrong Will forever in part Haunt my heart
