Radburne War VI – the time to prepare has come!

Thundering hooves pound in the distance….

M’lord, look yonder, tell me what you see?
Is that a white horse comes towards me?

And on its back a rider – a bow, a crown;
His name – Conquest.

M’Lord, look yonder, tell me what you see?
Is that a red horse comes towards me?

And on its back a rider carries a Great Sword;
His name – War.

M’Lord look yonder, tell me what you see?
Is that a Black horse comes towards me?

And on it’s back a rider – a balance in hand;
His name – Famine.

M’lord, look yonder, tell me what you see?
Is that a Pale horse comes towards me?

And on it’s back a rider carrying scythe;
His name – Death.
