BloodRaven


BloodRaven
by Ted L Glines

BloodRaven haunts the burial grounds,
zombies and skeletons making their rounds,
she raises them all from their mouldy tomb
in the darkly night where mandrakes bloom.

Amazon circled 'round the burial ground
slaying her monsters where ever found,
with powers BloodRaven was known to wield,
she had to clear this killing field.

The first of many major ills,
the sort that give you nightmare chills,
BloodRaven's a handful to be sure,
opposed to all that's right and pure.

Amazon approached - ill at ease,
fire flickered evil through the trees,
in a voice from hell - BloodRaven said
“Come join my army of the dead! ”

Zombies on the left - more coming on the right,
Amazon in the middle - bloodthirsy tonight,
Amazon waded in - firing at her raving head
'til - in a flash of lightning - BloodRaven was dead.

And in the silence which followed,
Amazon shook and swallowed,
for - once - BloodRaven had been a sister
until the Evil One had kissed her,
and now her soul was hellward hurled
from the darkness of our world.

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
