“A storm builds, and its coming will cleanse the World”
Lo! We have listened to many a story of our forefathers, their splendor of old, their mighty heirs and warrior deeds! Many a son of warriors old, taken by the forces of savage foes.
Whence came this seed of evil? Born of a father from Ny-an-za, in the “Dark Continent.”
The mother of evil, from Wi-chi-ta, a far away land named “The New World.” The seedling to be born a half-breed son.
The young lad had not a decent upbringing; a father and mother of nomadic ways, he found guidance through a false prophet, who resided in the windy city.
The prophet-noir did instill obscure and profane thoughts into the impressionable young mind. The lad had sought out strange writings by mad-men; twisted ideas of “taking from one man, to give to another”, his education grew in the wrong direction- it was too late- he had sealed his fate.
Surrounded by faceless soulless men and women; he learned his craft well, to be a soothsayer and captured the feeble minded through wicked spells of deception.
From humble beginnings, paltry and weak, he grew to a tyrant as time brought change to the world; he slyly throve under heaven in power and pride.
As he tasted a sip of power he knew, he had to take it all for himself; nothing to stop him- the lawmakers that were trusted to protect the masses, they also fell victim to his spells.
Woe the fate of a great Republic- sabotaged by this monster!
He had planned his campaign; through any means to take power, to rule over all. His ideas were to be followed, none may object; strike down those who dare criticize his will.
His rise to the Apex of power came to pass, swift like a thief in the night. By covert planning; many opened the doors for him, through nefarious ways.
In his court of advisers; a haggard woman of power, took him for her pawn. She vouched for him; a lie through and through….that he may be eligible to be supreme leader over all.
Although the contract of the Republic stated only a natural citizen may rule; she convinced the judges, that her words were true.
Once in power, this usurper from the “Dark Continent” needed not abide by the laws. The oligarchy ruled; looked the other way, when transgressions were committed against the common people.
Those who had power, had committed treason against the Republic; how to annihilate them to restore peace and prosperity through the Great Land?, for which many a brave warrior had met mortality to protect.
Oh the fate of a great nation, only to collapse under such duress!
Everything that was hidden will be revealed; and as the sun overcomes the darkness, will a new day dawn with grace?
