Poetry 201, Day 2: Journey, Limerick and Alliteration

There’s only one entry this time, but it is quite close to me. The story it hints at is the reason this blog is named so:

The dark ruler rues the rainy night,

The prophecy he’s heard has given him a fright.

All know fates can never lie,

and he is destined to die.

“Come what may”, he vows to fight.

Thanks to jdoublep, I realized that the rhythm might be breaking for some in the second line above. If you are one of those, please read while imagining a comma between ‘heard’ and ‘has’. (The prophecy he’s heard, has given him a fright). I haven’t made the changes above because I am not sure of it remaining grammatically correct.

    1. Well as suggested above, the story is of a dark ruler who’s fated to die in a year and decides to fight his fate. The entire story (and the dream) was based on this person’s point of view.
