The Black Queen - Poem by Fox Nekitsune

This is a tale of the greatest tragedy
the fading of the highest majesty
the greatest beauty ever seen
She is The Black Queen

her perfect body of shadow
her form sharp as a crow
her pale nocturnal beauty
is her most important duty

her lonely life such a sad tale
as even the greatest beauty must fail
as her years grew ever longer
her bitterness grew ever stronger

Her love of her people corroded
Her ancient ways outmoded
her withered heart faded
and her mind evermore jaded

now here lies the queen we all adore
to fade into legend evermore
the greatest tragedy ever seen
She was The Black Queen
