    Default Crimson King Poem

    I actually wrote this poem for someone close to me, but I figure since it has to do with the Dark Tower in a slight way I'll plaster it on here. It isn't that good, but it just sorta came out after I started. (Oh, and by the way... it was entirely inspired by All_Hails sig.)

    O Discordia!
    Thou generous darkness!
    Breaker of chains!
    Seer of chaos!

    Shine!
    Shine thou Crimson beauty!
    Shed thy light upon us!
    Thy truth is to be praised!

    Come, all seekers!
    Come and join the dark!
    Submerge in it's endless depths!
    Worship the Eye of the King!

    Serve the King!
    Serve and serve him gladly!
    The Beams fall to his mercy!
    The Tower pales in his shadow!

    Heir of Eld!
    Ruler of all!
    Tamer of the multiverse!
    Toppler of order!

    Breaker of the old way!
    Father of bitter truth!
    All shall kneel and say:
    All hail the Crimson King!
    Duty is heavier than a mountain, death lighter than a feather. - al'Lan Mandragoran, Eye of the World

    I'm surprised I missed this.
    "It's his eyes, Roland thought. They were wide and terrible, the eyes of a dragon in human form" - Roland seeing the Crimson King for the first time.

    "When the King comes and the Tower falls, sai, all such pretty things as yours will be broken. Then there will be darkness and nothing but the howl of Discordia and the cries of the can toi" - From Song of Susannah

    Good job. Also a bit creepy that when I started reading this "Mars the Bringer of War" started playing from my radio.

    i once tried writing a poem about the Crimson King.
    it started out:
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    then i got writers block.
    Beyond the scope of light, beyond the reach of Dark. . . what could possibly await us?
    And yet, we seek it, insatiably. Such is our fate. . .
