The Two Headed Beast (unicorn quest saga)

success for the standard bearer would end endless terror

none would come to the village to rape and to pillage

the legend tells of a time when none will be forlorn

there will be no need for a look out with a warning horn

when in the glade by the village resides majestic unicorn

success for the standard bearer would end endless terror

none would come to the village to rape and to pillage

his passage thru forest was marked by chattering monkey

in open country wild dogs told the birds who carried the story

to the polycephalic(1) beast in the mountain they chirped it is he

success for the standard bearer would end endless terror

none would come to the village to rape and to pillage

moonlight illuminated the rock strewn path as the vision foretold

the massive two headed charging beast was the horror untold

however the warrior drooped to his knees the beast stopped cold

success for the standard bearer would end endless terror

none would come to the village to rape and to pillage

the legend tells of a time when none will be forlorn

there will be no need for a look out with a warning horn

when in the glade by the village resides majestic unicorn
