A pledge of undying loyalty, with a twist. First published February 2003 in The Illuminata.

The Oath
by Bret Funk

When lightnings flash and thunder booms,
When bandaged mummies flee their tombs,
And Pharoah’s Curse descends on you,
You will not stand alone.

If wizards dressed in midnight robes,
Chant mystic spells from ancient tomes,
Or monsters call your closet home,
You will not stand alone.

Should Odin call for Ragnarok,
Or monsters spring up from the loch,
And all the others run from shock,
You will not stand alone.

Against dragon fire and orcish horde,
Against axe or spear or bow or sword,
Or when Charon beckons you to board,
You will not stand alone.

To fight the Gods with you I’ve sworn,
And threats both man and magic born,
But just once should you a woman scorn,
Then, friend, you’re on your own!

Couldn't help but chuckle at the last two lines...
Nothing much can withstand that!
Enjoyed this and the unexpected ending, definitely!
