My take on a bit of The Dark Crystal. It's one of my favorite movies.

I had a friend


Bound by being the same


But we had our differences


We were our own selves




United in Evil


But that's all we knew


Never really trusting each other


Never showing our tell




We both had a goal


Always strived for the best


Always wanting more


Forever expanding our riches




We made our own friends


To only further our plans


To gain more support


To carve out more niches




But when the time came


To step on each other


'both reached for the scepter


To sit on our throne




To bicker like children


Not knowing to reason


There is only one way


To trial by stone




It's not our fault


It's  just the half we were given


To change us would be


To take the pricks from a thistle




We were so arrogant


We thought we were gods


We wanted it all


So we broke the Dark Crystal
