once there was a family deepunderground

once there was a realm of creativity here underground
we were united and showed real love for each other
then the dark rolled in
factions rose the kingdom bitterly divided

a game of chess began
innocent pawns were moved around
they were dispensable after all
so when they fell by the wayside it mattered not

I'm here to tell you it matters to me
I don't like manipulation
mean spirits and backstabbers
I don't like being used as an end to a means
I am fucking pissed

I once valued what you think
you hurt me
you hurt many
you can sit where you do and laugh at me

I'll tell you now I may be crazy
but I have magic
I'm casting now for a united kingdom

the factions crumbled to rubble
the poets escaping the chaos
entering into the sacred gardens of creativity
no longer pawns of war so easily discarded
a place of love and understanding

this is what I know to be true
you think I don't see
I see more than you
