KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
In the teardew kingdom of heaven,
there was more, there was more.
There were more of us then than four.
I, Hanashiro, and then Shiragiku,
Shirayuri, and…and he.
Whose name I wish remained unknown to me.
I WAS ONCE
But the gods do not savor
speaking of unsavory topics
Such what happens to a child
of a goddess
That she forgot to bless
and instead left abandoned, lest
someone find him, and on a whim
Take him home, and keep him
til he's grown, or try to,
And then when the gods deny you,
You leave me all alone with him
And scapegoat the rest of us,
who become the last of the Amayuri,
these LILIES OF HEAVEN, cut off
from all our brethren,
Three birds and a rabbit.
And when you tell a rabbit
he can have it,
What is stopping him anymore?
I don't, anymore.
