I think you've meant to write sickle my friend :) I thought that was it but I wasn't sure. My ancestors used to carry a falx into battle. It's a weapon similar to a sickle only longer, heavier and a bit straighter too. It almost looks like a japanese sword with the cutting edge on the other side. You can look it up on wikipedia if you want. A strong man could split a helmet in half or break the neck of the enemy with one. It was also used to dismember enemies. The Romans were so terrorized by it that by the second roman-dacian war they made special helmets to protect them from it.
Yah , I guess I did get a bit carried away with my hobo comment but the piece did so much stream of consciousness stuff to me I thought I'd just blither it down there . I'm glad you liked "Quest" . Of my simpler works I think it's one of the best . Thanks for the time .
