Breaking Free:

I sit here waiting, in the coldest of cells
Outside I hear them screaming for blood
I know that they mean to kill me soon
Yet somehow my spirit remains resolved and calm

As they march me to the gallows, wrapped in chains
I grin knowingly as they force me to kneel
Each and every man in the audience, waits for this moment
They know that something is about to change!

An eldritch wind ripples through the air
And I can feel it wrapping around my beating heart
It makes me feel like breaking the conventions:
The ones that I've torn apart...

And as they make me bow before the guillotine
I can feel a sense of unrivaled excitement
This is the moment where things will change!
I can sense it in the way that the air is moving

As one I see the masses rise, they become tall-
Like giants made of flesh and anger!
They break like the tide upon the guards holding me
Setting me free once more...

And as I redeem my hat from the clutches of the self-righteous
I give him a grin and tell him good day;
For he shall always remember this moment:
As the time he ALMOST caught...Captain Chenbeard of the Black Fedoras

"Now then, I say we get this show on the road. Savvy?"

BREAK THE LIMIT! Faves Needed: 200

Want to know what the above line is about? Read my appeal: [link]

Author's Comment:

Now I feel I ought to clarify WHY I'm doing this whole appeal thing. Personally, I got NO REASONS whatsoever for my work being shuffled. No explanation, not even a note to tell me it was happening. It did not need to be a COURTEOUS note...but some notice and means of communication would have been nice.

I never demanded to achieve front page all the time, but it seems that I am being made into sacrificial lamb and marked as some kind of target....Hmmm, oh well, c'est la vie. Let's party instead!

Want to be a part of the change? Just click the fave button, plain and simple. Want to know how to get rewards, goodies and mentions? Read the full appeal and find out what DA is really doing, because they're telling you that they can just take away everything you've worked for and no one has to care =P

Reminds me of the scene in Tim Burtons 'Alice in wonderland' when the mad hatter is about to be beheaded. Lovely poem ^.^ And that really sucks about what Da is doing.... Oh well, you have plenty of fans so let them do what they like, eh?

That's the idea. All I need is one click of a button from everyone and their little game falls apart, so if you have a second to spare, click the fave button right there ;3

They're at it again! This piece has just been shuffled behind a less popular lit piece, and there's no lit on the 24hr front page. I don't know what they have against you, but this is ridiculous.
