Random Poem:

The pyre's dirge

I want to burn,
without celebration,
no ad in the paper,
for my incineration.
No procession, no grave,
for I will never rot,
then hide your filthy crosses,
my soul belongs to none.
I leave my realm,
my town, my streets,
now crown my head,
with golden wreath.
Pour me there,
on my land,
where i bled,
was bred and fed...
Please do grieve,
and play my song,
from early mourning,
until dawn.
