~ One And Ten Blackbirds ~
One in ten blackbirds cackling...
As they stand as sentinals most brisk~
Outside of the armored Castle...
Pecking out vagrants of risk;
' Tis all in due time' crows The Raven~
'For we shall dance inside its midst'...
'The hallowed halls once virginal to a fault'
'Shall be tainted by my most toxic kiss';
'No need to draw your sabers-Blackbirds~
'The sharp blade 'tis for: 'Blood Lusts Aspire''
'Tis but a double-edged sword in plain view'
'Pillaging and ravaging: 'Tis our most eternal desire';
Sharpened talons reach out to halt the gathering of the bounty~
And prevent the Raven's Pirates already most full plate...
But egregious and heinous evils-thusly exposed-clearly...
The proud sentinals praise Destinys eventual fate;
For their karma, indeed, has come full circle...
Sneaking up behind the hypocrites blind backs~
Ah, multiple secret societies are: The True Hero's~
As they shine added light* unto the nights deepest of black...
...And into the Light: All that has been hidden 'shall be' made clear...
