The Shattered Mind of King Aiden

Round the throne and marble halls
Amidst the dirty market stalls
We leave the sorrows well behind
And sing of Aiden’s shattered mind

For twenty five years he ruled
He was adored and never fooled
Until the night it all went wrong
And Aiden spoke an evil tongue 

He raved for years and wet his bed
Chewed his fingers ‘til they bled
Yan Gennaris drew his head
And then one night the king was dead
             Alcyer folk rhyme
