Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
INVEST your time in righting wrongs
Inflicted by the greedy throngs
INVENT a scheme to give love power
To rail and batter down the Tower
A HEATER warms me from the cold
But THEATER could break their mold
The HEATHER sways in fields untilled
Where mem'ries fell and joys were killed
The WEATHER blasts through plans well-meant
But men cause harm with full intent
UNITE for strength, in love and hope
To smite the fiend, UNTIE the rope
The SLAUGHTER starts. Despair is all,
But LAUGHTER waits beyond the wall
In ANGER strike the unjust foe
Let DANGER shatter to our blow
The RANGER knows the path we follow,
Through STRANGER lands where foul beasts wallow
And past the STRANGLER fell and rude
The WRANGLER of our servitude
Humanity's disdained these days
No businessman would mend his ways
With GREED they teem, AGREED in lust
For selfish gain; we cannot trust
A WORD they say, they love our pain
Still more whene'er they stand to gain
The things we EARNED. Our lives are scorned.
"Don't tell us you were never warned!"
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
