Longbows against the tide

Nothing could stop the wave
Of fire and destruction
Every act against it
Was forlorn
No one could escape
Annihilation was inevitable
Even when the defenders
Were oath sworn
And brave
It was inexorable
Endlessly it hungered
Marched without rest
Consuming all
And the men and women
Sent to stop it
Were swallowed up
In its tide
