Sea Queen

By MooreFunn · 1 minuteBack to stories

“Come now!

my faithless crew,

stop your chords

there’s things to do.

A hefty monster

guards the sea,

a quest for loot

sounds good to me.”

(We set a course,

we hoist the sails,

bound for treasure

we can not fail.

For if we do

I hate to say,

this beast might rule

another day…)

“Come now

we must be swift,

we shan’t be heard

so seal your lips.

In the crack of dawn,

the sailors blight,

burn the ships,

this ends tonight.”

(We grab our swords,

we arm the cooks,

in this chess

we are the rooks.

Then we see

below the deck,

a graceful queen,

prepare to check!)

“Lunge now,

before it’s late!

Don’t wait to move,

she doesn’t wait!

Tarry longer

and you will see,

massive armies

reduced to threes.”

(She makes her move

our ranks then suffer,

our fashioned fleet

reduced to clutter…

It is true,

our hope is lost,

she has her mana,

our lines are crossed.)

“I then sink deep,

down below…

I can not speak

what has been shown.

That day befell

a tragedy,

to hope one survives!

well, it was me.”
