The ScorpionThe Scorpion
As hostile as the yellow sun
To a man's protected skin,
A wanderer of the mirage
I tunnel up to the dry landscape.
Many consider this place cruel,
An unforgiving and harsh place,
One that grants its own burials.
I take refuge in this place.
This place is my kingdom,
I am its Spartan
It is my Greece,
And they are the Persians.
Weary each of them are.
They mark me a gift from the gods,
Remorse for entering here,
But oh so cunning I am.
With deception I strike.
Your weary body cannot move,
It cannot comprehend,
It can only fall and crumble.
Your travels end here courier,
For you are Athena's bastard,
And I am your Dionysus,
But yet, you have no Medusa today.
No, today you may only wither,
As the sands fold
And you are drawn closer to me,
I will embrace you.
You may be hesitant,
But give me your confidence,
My illusions shall show you fear,
But only in a handful.
I burrow beneath the landscape
As slowly you inhale the dust,
Now I may rest beneath you,
As you become one with th
Der GroBmanDo not go over that fence,
And into his dark woods.
Forget what you have been told,
His notes hold no reward before your death.
His fear will overcome you,
For these are his woods and you are his game,
Others have tried and others have failed,
Those who failed were lucky, those who tried will never say goodbye.
He wears a black suit as dark as the night,
His face pale and blank as the midnight clouds,
Long tentacles that emerge from his back,
And tall and slender to be one with the trees.
Like a hunter he will be patient,
Waiting for the moment to strike.
He will first appear without a sound,
Letting you run free to think you have a chance.
Once you have stopped and regained your breath,
You will wander in fright and confusion,
He will appear again,
Knocking you to the ground,
Leaving you scramble for escape.
Lifting you up by his tentacles,
He will hang you upside down,
Eat away at your neck,
And take you away where even god cannot watch you.
Now it appears you have already left.
