It's hard to say without the context.

It looks to be about Vikings/pirates (don't laugh! :p:). If that is the case, you could say that it reinforces the destruction/disruption that they're causing.

Ideally, try and think of your own interpretation though.

stands out of the poem, so it may have a certain meaning or it is important.

1) Gives us the chance to get a lot across in a short amount of time2) Creates dramatic effect as many points are being mentioned in quick succession.

emphasises the reality of brutality (I don't know the context to this quote, so I hope this helps!!)
