Make up a poem/song for the given title

Post by Dugi » January 25th, 2016, 7:10 pm

Since the Forum Games were brought back after a half year of being hidden, it's time to remind that it's not useless. I am calling for a small writing practice. Make up a song (or poem, or something roughly in that style) that fits the title given by the previous player.

Rules:
1. Try to employ at least some creativity and don't write just a one-liner
2. It is supposed to have some rhymes, not everywhere but at least somewhere
3. Try to keep the titles wesnoth themed, don't sabotage the game with a bad title
4. The rules above are advisory, if your idea is really good, they may be broken

Example:
Title: Ever heard of orcish women?
Text:
They come as a storm, rape, murder and pillage,
our defences fell, they are marching to my village.
They are so scary, big, muscled and strong,
but I feel that something is really wrong.

Where are they from? I see no women!
I don't think that's how they're living.
Maybe they stay at home hiding,
when their husbands go raiding.

Perhaps we can't tell them from men,
and by women we're slaughtered then.
They also could be just like us,
indistinguishable from humans.

Brilliant! Why didn't I see this sooner?
Not actually a spoiler:

Nice game! :-D

I toyed with the "Necromancer's Romance" and came up with the following verses.


Lust for life is overrated.
In my nest I'm drawn to death and un-youth
Lust for life is for the sedated.
Better rip the veils apart
and balance on the edge of the despairing truth.

I long for darkness and otherworldly matters,
shunning light and all its friends.

In here I've found My Dearest Dear, a sweet and flickering romance.
Her I love, for Her I care.
In the deep abyss of twosome solitude, we hold hands, embrace and dance,
and together rides the night like a mare.

We long for darkness and otherworldly matters,
shunning light and all its friends.


It could probably need some improvements, but that was what time allowed me. Feel free to improve it. Or write an even better one!
