The Empty Princess

Deep within the chamber lies
An empty girl with empty eyes
She sits upon an empty throne
In the dark, all alone

She’ll guard a land of war and strife
For all of her empty life
She watches as men’s lives are lost
And tallies up their empty cost

And deep within her empty shell
Lies the thrice damned gate to hell
This she guards with empty might
Hides from all mortal sight

Her magic runs wide and deep
And deep within her spirit sleeps
So that every empty day
She might keep evil at bay

Fate awaits us all in turn
The wicked are sure to burn
So men from every land bow down
And kiss the empty princess’ gown
