"Lobanna vs the Tarrasque"
By Marcus Pan
A lonely night on Vestland's border.
The path through
hills like dismal corridor.
The man, he stopped to rest his head.
Praying for sleep without dread.
But as he slept a creature crawled.
In legends told, the Tarrasque it's called.
The ground, it shook
beneath it's weight.
Through prayer of Ishtar, man awakes.
with its eyes of red.
Spies the knight, wants him dead.
Its jaws, they
snatch, its breath, it fumes.
Lobanna fights against his doom.
sword and swinging blade.
Pow'r with fire from steel displayed.
power drains, his lifeblood flows.
The end is near, the beast it knows.
Through blade of steel and pow'r of prayer.
Lobanna fights against
On and on his muscles strain.
The beast tears flesh, blood it
Beast's strength is great, it is strong.
Moreso than can be
said in song.
Knight raises arms to heavens high.
Fire flashed within
A globe of colors surrounds the knight.
The beast runs
through, feels its might.
A fearful blast, a terrible roar.
creature is no more.
