Darkened Corridors

I was among the crowd.

did not want to be there.

The baron sent you to do his dirty work,

So we would have been lucky,

If we made it past the end of the day.

The baron had sent you to do his dirty work,

You creatures that stalk the castle.

You did not want to be there,

But it was tantalizingly dark.

Those creatures that stalk the castle,

They are as dark as night is black,

And it was darker than night.

We should have been cautious.

We should have been cautious,

And even then we would have been lucky,

To make it past the end of the day.

We are now dark,

We creatures that stalk the castle.

I had been among the crowd.
