The Elf's Reprieve
The bearer of destruction and insanity
Brought forth great calamity
No matter how the elves fought back
They always failed in their attack.
They had sent their best with no avail
And now their existence seemed all too frail
The elves had been all but beaten
But there was one last chance,
A man they all called a cretin.
To Ryumaru's castle the most noble made travel
And they went with speed for there was no time to dabble
Their deal was simple
If the mad man was made cripple
Then Ryumaru was free to leave his prison temple.
He agreed and with great speed
Mounted a fiery steed.
He searched out his prey
And with ferocity did pay
The blood of the insane as his way.
The nobles all cheered him
And some even revered him
But all stood still
As the realization their backs did chill
When they saw in his eyes a wicked thrill.
He looked at them a moment
Then glanced at his prize
And all followed his eyes.
He looked down to his blades
That from the corpse he did raid
Then looked back up to his praise.
He said with content:
"I have my prize!"
"Now at my hands which of you will be the first to die!"
He nocked his blade and within a minute
He had slaughtered the great Elven Senate
His vengeance was made
But was his mind decayed?
Only time will tell
Or if you dare seek them the gates of hell.
For with time he slew
All of whom he knew
Were of the plot
That once against him grew.
Once this task was finished
His lust he sought to quench
But he was to discover
That he could never recover
The loss of his fiery dragon lover!
