The one that I wanted
 'Fore the Sadie Hawkins Dance
Were the same that I wanted
 The dance before.

I can think of at least five reasons
why it didn’t happen.
It might’ve been about five thousand
for all it wasn’t.

  a.k.a A Drunk Unrhyme
Another night with the same mecenat
I am glad I'm enabled to write:
I could be a shadow in the crowd,
A zombie who does not feel when it gets too loud.
I am grateful I am I -
I could've been a commoner dolt:
A dickwit who cannot understand
The diff'rence 'tween Watt and me.
We are both smart people -
Smarter than you, had you any doubt.
But that don't mean I'm to proud to say
This isn't my best fuck-around.

The Titanpeaks are one of the most striking geographic features on Terevel’s map, splitting the continent into two parts. Deep inside these mountains live the Grey Titans, a short, metallic-skinned race of miners and craftmen. Their cavernal habitats, joined together by tunnels, are lit by three so-called wells, the Well of Thogall, the Well of Gresh, and the Well of Kochom. Titan mythology states these wells to be a gift from the Elblers head god Steofal, god of Light when the Titans were banished to their mountainous habitat. The Titans have learned to transport this light almost losslessly to their settlements outside their three original cities.

Physiology: Titans have tough, leathery skin, which goes from being white in youth, through their epinomous grey in their adult life, to silvery in old age. They range from 1 to 1½ meter in height(~3-5 feet).

Government: Each city is ruled by a king, and in times of distress these join together under  a high king. These kings usually don’t have great amounts of power, being mostly a figurehead for the people and advisor to the same. They are elected by popular assent, and it is not unusual for a city to be without a king for any amount of time.

Psychology: The archetypal Titan is stoic and loyal with a strong sense of fairness and justice. They are attentive to small details, which can go so far as to be pedantic. Faults that other races lay to them include their overprotective, preachy and sometimes cynical traits. Titans are generally said to be good storytellers, as long as they don’t get too bogged down in the genealogy of the characters.

Olokun by John Pepper Clark

I love to pass my fingers,
As tide through weeds of the sea
And wind the tall fern-fronds
Through the strands of your hair
Dark as night that screens the naked moon:

I am jealous and passionate
Like Jehovah, God of the Jews,
And I would that you realize
No greater love had woman
From man than the one I have for you!

But what wakeful eyes of man,
Made of the mud of this earth,
Can stare at the touch of sleep
The sable vehicle of dream
Which indeed is the look in your eyes?

So drunken, like ancient walls
We crumble in heaps at your feet;
And as the good maid of the sea,
Full of rich bounties for men,
You lift us all beggars to your breast.

A song, in the style of Goth Rock.

I feel a presence in the air
Something crawling in the night, I fear
I see something in the shadows there
How come I'm feeling so alone in here

   CHORUS
This is where it ends
But don't - lose your head
These are my friends
I'm living with the dead

They're all so evil, yes it's true
They always drink - my last coke
Watch out they'll pull some prank on you
If you're not careful they will play an evil joke

   REPEAT CHORUS

(Sotto voce)
And now the party's over
Head for your homestead
Come back tomorrow
We'll be living with the dead
()
We'll do it now instead
There's just no way of stopping
When you're living with the dead
