Rated: GC · Poetry · Dark · #2248152
Dark! Written for a competition. Contains references to violence.

Darkness was now glowering;
Shadows thrummed with spite galore;
Cruel Dark King was towering;
Wicked judgement he forbore.

Highness was not satisfied;
lowliness got no respite;
Now all Fear was amplified;
Sadism set King alight.

Court with cruel glee atremble,
Joined Him now to all partake;
Wearing Jester's ensemble,
Mockingly, to
you unmake.

Now the strike hit,
Now the wail,
Now the rage fit,
Now all fade.

He can still be merciful;
His hand gives a sweet caress;
The King's Verdict's beautiful:
Rest, He grants
you now Darkness.

Round 44 DDPC
