Rivers Of Blood - A Sonnet

Rivers Of Blood - A Sonnet

1 min 158 1 min 158

There was a strange kingdom far far away

In which flowed a river, sparkling and bright.

Pretty swans swam in it during the day

While terrifying creatures lurked at night

The legend goes that when one was cruel,

A drop of blood fell into this river.

But each time one cheerfully spread goodwill,

The river turned a little bit purer.

Not a soul has seen this river but mine

And as I saw what others died to see,

I simply couldn't stop myself from crying

And I ran away; I had to flee.

The river was bloodier than rose fields

And was drowning a child, muffling their shrieks
