choose your fighter (DnD Edition)

lowly drow, slink
away before the flame
bites; it’s been a day
and change since i cut
a purse. if you don’t pursue
ash, keep your tune
as stashed as all corpses
before you that crossed
my teeth.

tiefling, thick with nonsense
did the father not learn the son?
demons these days, can’t make sense
if they’re ignorance, or the blissful
carry on your way, and pray
the lute doesn’t carry on for you

what i carry is a bastard rage,
rasped horns flaming, grasped mortality
scorched with no shame.
i’ll grin as i defame,
and de-frame your vital fluids;
drown this drow in a row
loud as roaring flame.

summer sweetly sticks,
sucks away the sin
but springblades bear your smile;
a bard’s tale precedes her
you cannot put down 
what lives above you,
try again, impotent sadness

sing again after this;
i’ll have your hydrostat twist
’round my serrated instrument.
if i knew your name
i’d have you say it
in a gurgle of blood and spit.

good luck, drow.
unlike your talent
i actually
exist.

halflings preach more sublime things
than the ash rolling from your kings
knowledge is my right
and you’ll never survive this fight,
ixios – splayed across the night

bring me your broken
care not to be bespoken
lest your rest your breast in dark west
remember me – baestra

okay beast, you tripped the trap
rip out your weak strings, trample.
can you keep time with ample
silence? speak ‘burn’
and conflagrate, the violence
catches sparks and in the straw
of your gaping maw
ins-pyres.

your chords are all wrong,
you hiss like a broken flute
when will you learn that to ring the gong
you must first be acute
of the fact that I will not only dispute
but entirely refute
that idea that you are
anything except unextraordinary
leaving angels quite wary
and me,
legendary
