BY THE CURL OF MY HAIR

The King Held Counsel With A Group Of Madmen.
All At Once, Their Tormented Souls Began To Cry Out.
My Voice Was Free Of Its Beastly Nature
And The King Heard It Above The Rest.
He Signaled The Guards
To Put That Madman Back In Chains.
 
« O King, If I Am Mad,
You Are The Solomon Of Every Mad Spirit. »
« O King, You Know The Language Of The Birds
And The Spell Of Magicians. »
« Why Use Chains On Me?
Can’t You Cast A Spell On This Madman? »
 
An Old Man Approached The King And Said :
 
« Bind Him In Chains.
This Madman Will Spread Havoc
Through Both Worlds. »
 
The King Said :
 
« This Madman Cannot Be Held By Chains,
Only By The Curl Of My Hair. »
« You Do Not Know Him As I Do. »
« He Will Break A Hundred Fetters
If They Keep Him From My Hand. »
« This One Knows But Three Words,
To Us Return,
For He Is The King’s Falcon. »
 
Thanks!
