Ink&Iron Heroic Fantasy

Alphonse de Neuville & Édouard Riou

Tackling Trolls

Is Rather Droll

but I Wonder

If I Can Make an Epic Poem of This

Could They Make the Boring List

of Sycophants

or Climb a Few Steps Higher

Suckling From the Breast

of the Best Poet

to Ever Wrest

a Little Nest

Dedicated to the God

of the Lyre

I Could Go On

but I Need Rest

& I am Tired

Any Way you Haven’t Paid

& This Ain’t the Place

For Criers

Free Range

Stop THE MADness
you Say
& Do Not Blame
Quite Simple
One Set of Rules
& Seek the Truth
Be a Good Shepard
to Man, Beast, & Land
& Quest For the Stars
you Ask
Where to Start
Start
From the Hearth
Be a King among Men
a Hero In Heart
They Still Sing Songs
of Those That That Gave Their All
to Free Us From the Shackles of Ignorance
to Be Better Than
Climb On Out of This Cage
Free Range

Monte

the Count
of Monte
Cristo
Perhaps
the Greatest
Story
Ever Told
of Revenge
&

Love
of Miseries
UnTold
Under
the Lash
you Become
the Beast
That Was
Man
&

Can
Only Climb
Up
the Power
Money
Mad
It
Gave Him
All
He Had
the Bitterness
Of
the Past
Washed
a Way
Like Sand
&

Only
Now
the Moment
Was Left
to
Stand

Stone & Steel

on To

the Temple

of Hephaestus;

What Glory a Waits me,

Forlorn Son

of Past Noble Deeds.

OnWard

to the Treasures

Only I Could Steal,

Past Gorges & Ravines.

Through Withering Heights

I Followed This Dream,

Minerva’s Steed.

No Earthly Things Did I See,

Only Cold, HardShip & Depravity;

Till I Reached That Crystal

Cavern of Old.

The Lame God

was Depicted In Many Scenes,

the Love of Fire & Forge

& That

Which I did Seek;

His Crowning Achievement

the Star Sword;

Aphrodite’s Bane;

Aries’ Whore.

What I Wonder

Will Bar my Door

From This & More.

In Answer Blood was Spilt;

Mine.

For That Steel Clad Creature

Had None I Could Find.

Brazen Brass Bull,

my Blade

a Tiny Broken Thing.

Sharp Fingers Rend Flesh,

Curses Give Way to Screams

At the Test

of Metal Against Muscle.

Plunging the Pommel

Through One

of Its Fiery

Red Orbs;

Kicking Out with Both Feet.

Thrusting It & Much of me;

For the Talons Still Did Cling

to Pieces of me,

From the Shelf

Where we Did Battle.

In To the Fire

That Did Ring us In

Before a Bridge.

Where I Once Again

Took Up my Plight,

For I Saw No Way

It Could Survive

Or Climb the Black Night

That Had Swallowed

the Guardian

of the Crypt.

Taken From
the Private
Journals
of #B27321
Last Son
of a
Fallen Line.
