In Ballad De Alter - Poem by Joseph Oliver
Chaos Reigns and Fire Spreads,
Death has come for the lover's heads,
Will they fight or will they fear?
Does it matter, will anyone hear?
The angels weep for their fate,
Love is lost for it's too late!
The potion drank, the knife is drawn,
Death is on the lover's lawn!
They lie in the tomb til tomorrow,
Their families weep and harvest sorrow.
Chaos reined and fire now spreads,
Death has taken the lover's heads,
Did they fight or did they fear?
Did it matter? No one could hear!
