In the Name of my God

With chain-ed axe,
I hacked and rent.
For Blood's true call,
To hell I sent!
The Imperial Lap-dogs, whose faith disdained,
Quenched my thirst with their bloody rain.

For blood and death is all I know,
And darkest God in who’s name I sow,
The bloody Harvest of Gore and Pain
The crimson blood for Khorne’s name!
Skulls I heap at the foot of his throne,
The fate of those sealed in alabaster bone!

For Khorne’s mighty rage, I kill and bleed!
In death and blood, do I succeed!
Blighted is the name of God unknown,
From lips of fools who worship at the Golden Throne!
Would that they know my Master’s grace!
Would that they look upon his bloodied face!
His countenance would surely shame,
Those poor fools who worship in vain!

Let blood be my beckon’d call!
For that crimson ichor, I have sent them all,
To my Master, black and dark!
For forgotten Gods that bray and hark!
In blood my piety measures all!
For time will not pass without the call,
Of the Blood God’s wrathful thrall!

That we of Khorne have thusly slain,
The last of those who should remain,
On worlds touched with ignorant bliss,
For darkened words surely missed!
When comes the fire from the sky,
We blood-soaked warriors of the curse-ed Eye!

Pray in vain, you mortals all,
For in the coming darkness, the Blood God calls!
We who have come to tally the count,
We shall not leave without blood amount!


That's right...Khornate poetry. Now..if you'll all excuse me I should probably be planning my escape before mobs of berzerkers come beating on my door !

Good luck and good gaming,

Nate

What's really scary is that Nate has written this poem in his own blood on the walls of his apartment!

Again, another piece of excellent work from the Shogun with my only criticism being that as I read it, it suddenly became a rap tune and I was imagining Dr. Dre and Eminem singing it.

Now it's my turn -

Ratlings, meet the Ratlings
They're the sniping midgets family
From the planet of Ornsworld
They often like to hide in trees

No? Okay, I'm leaving.

Actually, yes. When I wrote this one, I really had no other plans but then the monster reared it's ugly head. The one above wrote itself. I swear I just banged away at the keyboard and it appeared LOL. The others will probably require some thinking though. Khorne is easy. Just use the words "Khorne" and "blood" a lot and bam...you've got something!

Thanks for the kind words!

Good luck and good gaming,

Nate

Very nice! I've been inspired now
I don't know which one I want to see the most... Tzeentch, Nurgle or Slaanesh...

Nate...I'm not sure that a properly Slanneshi poem could be appropriate for Heresy. Just kidding, but it would be interesting to keep the Prince of Pleasure and Excess's devotees appropriate for a site with kids on it. I'd go for Tzeentch and Nurgle first. Great job on Khorne.

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

Hmm...that sir sounds like a challenge! PG-13 Slaanesh here I come baby! LOL! Thanks for the kind words folks. I'll be working on the others soon!

Good luck and good gaming,
