The Death of the Tyrant Emperor (Based upon 'The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner' by Randall Jarrell)


From the top of my throne, I fell to my death.

My best friend dispatched me, I, the bloodstained tyrant of them all.

Yet with my death, my sister, my reason to live, would have her peaceful world.

And at the base of the fall, she cried for me, despite my crimes.

My sister cradled my head and wept as I died, as the world, in joy, raised the call.
