Sing a soooooong

A music poetry prompt.

Music quiets the most foul of beasts. It can be inspirational. Some musicians are known for perfect baby-making music. They can help to bring those tears to surface that tighten your throat, but just want come to air.

Music can be life changing.

Take a line from one of your favorite songs and write a poem. Let us know in your post what song you’re pulling from. You don’t have to write a poem that’s in the same vein as the song, in fact it would be amazing if you could change things up.

Be creative.

Be bold.

  1. Song from which the poem is entitled is Snake Eater performed by Cynthia Harrel from the soundtrack of acclaimed game Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater

    Not for honor, but for you

    Not for honor, but for you
    The thirteen heavens will be slain,
    Purged with immorality in sinful bayou…
    Not for honor, but for you!
    Encrypted in pagan glyphs of acajou
    Molding souls until ashes remain,
    Not for honor, but for you,
    The thirteen heavens will be slain!

    Not for honor, but for you
    Gods shall rise from emptiness’s vain.
    Angels flee to the nymph’s unholy domain,
    Lead caskets open and bones conjure thou,
    From barren clouds fells viscous rain,
    To enslave all in a crypt darkened and bijou…
    Not for honor, but for you!
    In crimson blood and in rusty chain,
    Glittering grotesque in fires of amadou,
    Shadows and chaos arrive to a still
    Riding spirits on the back of the carcajou.
    Eternal question of submitting the will,
    Not for honor, but for you,
    Hidden is in maddening verses of the tainted quill…
