Cassandra

She sat in a tower, all alone.

Sure of what’s coming,

but no one can know.

Why won’t they listen?

If they listened, they’d live.

 

Some worldly power kept the flames

from her tower.

Her tears flowed fast enough

to put out the embers, but

that couldn’t bring her people back.

 

She sat in a tower all alone,

knowing what’s coming,

but no one can know.

She can’t fall asleep,

with the laughter coming round.
