Potrero War

Thank you to everyone that participated in Potrero War 2020, and helped make the Known World’s first Virtual War a huge success!
We look forward to seeing you all again next year, hopefully in person.

Stay safe out there.

After the Siege

The siege is over.
Long ago was the
Curtain wall breeched,
Its rough hewed stones
Trebucheted down
The steep slope,
Tumbled memories
Marking the invaders’ entry.

Battle cries echo in the wind,
Whistle through the empty arrow loops,
Climb the tower’s worn stone stairs
To cloud laced skies overlooking
Green fields of another age.
