Han Min Ohn (29.7.1983 / Yangon)
A look into medieval period
Knights riding on the armored horses reigned
Prisoners, in the torture chambers, were detained
Castles reaching to the sky were proudly erected
Blood shedding on the ground, everywhere was detected.
Dwarves, elves and ogres were part of the myth
Dragons flying above were just too obvious to miss
Alchemy prospered in search of the Philosopher’s stone
Elixir of life might make people lasted longer than a bone.
Feudalism was the politic dominant around
Suzerains commanding vassals were everywhere found
Witches and demons might come and steal the souls
Black Death was not the only thing they showed.
Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury tales’ was the classic of choice
King Arthur’s glorious legend was quite nigh
Robin Hood and his merry men were not the only heroes
Crusaders participating in the bellum sacrum were part of the flow.
