Salamander King

Oh, furious lord of the pit:

Do excuse us for our prejudices

against you and your people.

We are just not compatible with you and your own,

as friends,

or lovers.

Do excuse us of our insolence

towards you and your own.

Knowing full well of our own history,

and how we came to be

it is quite clear why we do what we do in the way that we do.

And this, too:

that we won’t be subjugated to your will.

Simply put, we are not yours.

And yet, still,

you seek to destroy us through all of these absurd methods.

I wonder,

that if we think about them less and less,

you will continue to have any power over us?
