A Bard of Kek

- A Bard of Kek

Laocoon, follow'd by a num'rous crowd,
Ran from the fort, and cried, from far, aloud:
'O wretched countrymen! what fury reigns?
What more than madness has possess'd your brains?

A Kekthian warrior told me a story. This tale was of a gigantic wooden horse, filled with mercenaries, who deceived a city. The city dwellers took the poisoned gift because of their vanity and suffered the gravest consequences - the fall of their Empire.

This song was written while I languished in Twitter jail on Friday June 2nd 2017 for three hours, while I was unable to take part in discussions. The Bard was unjustly placed in prison for talking to the wrong people and listening to the wrong things. No explanation was given and when the world went dark the Bard was alone.

Then came Marduk bringing her Consolation. She reminded me that the fire is within and no matter how small the flame is it cannot be extinguished. Her Consolation is like a shining city on the hill; a beacon into the darkness of the universe. She turns the wheel and princes rise and fall. The wheel goes ever on and on.

This haunting melody was sung to me by a Kekistani maiden. The words spoke to my heart and I immediately set about making my own arrangement.

This song is dedicated to Dr Jordan B Peterson, whose lectures have been very inspiring. From the Chaos of Abzu and Tiamat and their intertwined coil-like, DNA melding arose the great serpent Marduk, also known as Pepe the Chaos God. We are living in the time of Pepe. This story was told to me by a Kekistani philosopher when explaining why people believe and do crazy things.

Once upon a time there was a frogling spawned to a lowly hedge-frog-knight that lived on the fringes of the Great Dank Forest.

He loved to play the lute and the flute and the drums but one day he found a computer and fell in love.

It's harder to play a computer than a lute a flute and drums but that's not going to stop this bard!

Follow my journey as I tour through Kekistan and beyond!
