the queen’s rapture
your empire means nothing to me
but your queen is my everything
kidnapped and held for ransom
you scrambled to amass
your very best men
sent them on a quest to save her
I directed them down multiple ways
each avenue looping into other
promising outlets where horses
drink from rivers flowing underground
and so you regrouped yet again
the man we call king
hiring more men to satisfy
your obsession with recapture
certain to awaken royal madness
stirring within a mighty empire
january two thousand fifteen
