NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 24: Marginalia from Medieval Manuscripts

 

Warrior Snail

 

You think a snail can’t fight,
but that’s a very limited
point of view.

Some of us are quite handy
with a rapier or a cudgel
made of dew.

Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo.net was to write a poem inspired by marginal artwork on medieval manuscripts. I was particularly taken with these battle snails.
