The Challenge

The Moon's Rays
Shall be covered by darkness
And none but mine
Eyes shall see

The blood and guts
Shall flow into rivers
Untill they form
A veritable sea

And there at the banks
Of their sorrow
Shall I
Gloatingly squat and stare

For mine are the powers
That are granted
By the multitudinous fools
Grown unaware

And this
Is my challenge
And you are my courage
Accept it if you dare

And I'll even tell you
To your face
Everytime you tremble
The rivers shall rise

I swear
