Queen of an unnamed land
Tried to sire King an heir.
She bore not one son, but twins
Who shredded her upon birth.
King, aghast at such an event
Sent his sons to be raised in seclusion.
Prince Rasiel and Prince Belphegor
Close brothers you would assume.
But nay they feuded in many a way
From simple rivalry to cruel grudge.
Attacking with sticks and stones and forks and knives,
Prince Rasiel away triumphed.
Prince Belphegor, furious at constant loss
Performed a devious trick;
Poisoning Prince Rasiel’s food
Making him unbearably sick.
Then Belphegor killed Rasiel.
His knives drew Royal blood.
Thus is the tale of Prince the Ripper.
