Fiery Kings

Relentless in the pointless quest
it seems they search
in circles
what may be a most obscure destiny

Their names are unknown
to him
who stares in mid-morning to the world
outside of a universe’s logic.

Home they are masterminds
of cities
counties, entire nations
a king waits on a lovely maiden.

A dynasty may end in a flash
and lightning
engulfed within a smoky cloud
knights without armors they perish in a crash.

But a shock came through a breast
and darkness
befell the giant now a carcass for
the tiny scavengers and a conquest.
