The Queen of the Ravens

In a land amidst the misty spires

In a world filled with hopes and desires

On an obsidian throne built by wicked mavens

Sits the Queen of the Ravens.

She rules her kingdom with insidious command

The people fear that their death is at hand

Her majesty devastates entire cities with a single spell

The Queen of the Ravens will easily quell.

But then rose a hero, strong and swift

Climbing and crawling, he crosses the rift

The hero rides past the castle gate

And storms the scene, not too late

To save the kingdom from the queen, terrible and cruel

To strike her down with his sword, to end her rule.

The hero bursts into her chambers

In an attempt to destroy the fruits of her labors

The Queen of the Ravens shrieks, summoning her birds

More horrifying and wretched then it is told in words.

Spells were tossed

Blows were swapped

But alas, after extensive battle

The hero plunges his sword into her black heart, and the walls did rattle

From the evil quake

The land did shake

For the Queen of Ravens,

Was no more.
