Forgotten

Forgotten  

Anansi, the trickster deity
A humanoid arachne god of the detestable, with a heart
A folklore, made to instill fright
He who would cause chaos to the natural order
A clutch to the downtrodden

Forget thee, I must

The all-seeing father, Aldadur Odin
Thunder his might, greed his downfall
Here before the new age, revered by all
War drums, rhythm to his undead heart
Death, to quench his thirst

Forget thee, I must

Arash Sheba, divinity of fertility
She who tested the great king Solomon
Wings of ebony, as black as night
Beauty, a curse adored by all
Mother of life, the three We of the Ashanti tribe

Forget thee, I must
