[101] Thanatos

Inspired by this song. Which will have to be posted later cause my Internet is being dumb. All fixed now.

Hot nights
Heat waves

A songbird cries its melody
Even as the night grows dark
Otherworldy spirits walk the roads
The animals fear them not

The owl hoots
Takes to flight
At the head of the column
The Dark God walks

Guiding his way
The owl leads
Soon they reach
Their destination unaccosted.

Within, a family slumbers
Without, a gang of thieves watches
The Dark God stands by
As the gang attacks

Haunting, his maidens sing
They cover the screams within
A child runs outside
She stops in front of them

Accusing, she points
At him
He smiles
Her death certain.
