Tyranny digs its own grave

I met a tyrant going to the fair

I enquired may I taste your ware?

The answer I received took me little by surprise:

“You wear my colours, but cannot hide

your true hues that you keep inside

so I will throw you in jail

and lose the key.

While you scream and wail

my laughter will be heard

around the land

while you rot in this hell

for ignoring my command.”

Tyranny

You have to pay for a deaf ear

Angry a man began to beat his dog
"Conniving with a thief is wrong!"

Answered the dog

"What more do you
Want me to do dear
After to my non-stop bark last night
You turned a deaf ear!

Went astray.

After it is to late
It makes a dabble
To hold citizens to
The chaos accountable!

the wind of justice,

the submerged freedom,

unnumbered;

waiting for heroes

to seal their fate.

 

In legends torn

from clay cast bright

we may witness

fire and blades and bows;

such blood-fuelled spite.

 

Now all too real;

slowly shed,

the skin of time;

The Hangman of Prague

In the days of war and Nazi conquest

Deep in the heart of the Third Reich

Was a man so cold and ruthless

That the fuhrer proclaimed had a heart of Iron

 

Hangman Heydrich ruled a nation

Of several million innocent Czechs

Controlling them with an Iron grip

Signs of resistance spelled their death

 

Himmlers deputy performed with efficiency

The darker pa...
