Get Rid Of The Advertisements

~ 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...
