The City of Fire

Kali 1

Take me home,

To my city of fire,

By the river that runs

To the sound of my breath

/

For my throne,

The red funeral pyre,

For too long

I have left empty;

/

And my children

Have grown into demons,

Spilling blood

At the altars of lies,

/

And my house’s been

Infested with shadows,

And my gold crown

Has lost its wild shine;

/

Let me dance

In the heart of my city,

Where I’ll fight one more battle

With fear

/

And when at my feet

It falls, defeated,

I will once again

Roam free
