O like a breeze they stemmed,
From the north, like a storm; Trampled these feet of ours! A far reaching spell alone brought Auguries of a will and ravage; A hunger to be scorched. Standing at the crossroad of a time, Holding the floor tide by tide; Aiming thus far fair and well. Nor a soul ever was to complain, First were they once they came; And seats taken all the same. Minuscule down the immense Must all find where to commence A motion towards shared quests? But as these perish, unsheathed swords, Their sediments to restore the world And all else shall be vain! May some through fortune stand and last Upon all this dream of a burning land Way up high beyond stars.

He stalks like a cat.
Then he roars aloud to scare out their attempts. He is bringing swinging claws. Swinging from his metal paws. He only wants the human his master thinks. To rip apart their work stink. His brothers rumble the ground. They also fly from the sky circling around. Remembering the sounds of cries of the past. Just like his brothers to sneak a midnight snack. Not only that but the pesky insects that feed. As they try to fight to end a world of greed. Roaring once more at the parasites host. Only one can save them to grow. He throws another roar to the wind. To be, feed, his fill of skin. Not to be hated but always feared by his foes. He will go wherever his scent will go. Try another round of joe. What he thinks no one will ever know. Right now we have all we need. After the far cry is heard he is swift at the deed. Try again and again to ravage the pain. What he finds out might make you go insane.
The town is ravaged, as you take your looks away from me
So begins the life long battle Waiting for the roads to rattle And i rise to face the day That gives me the pain And break my chain And ravage the town in vain
