Thy will be done

The king gave me a task

A quest that needed completing

Sword in hand I march

Enemies approach

Slay them

Dodge them

Run for dear life

I reach the goal, the quest is done

 

It is the next day

The king gives me a harder task

A quest that needs completing

Sword in hand I march again

Enemies approach stronger than before

Slay them

Dodge them

Solve their riddles

Run for dear life

I reach the goal, the quest is done

 

It is the next day

The king gives me a harder task

A quest that needs completing

Blunt sword in hand I march

Enemies approach even stronger than before

Slay them

Dodge them

Solve their riddles

I am fatigued

They stab me in the back

Run for dear life

I reach the goal, the quest is done

 

It is the next day

The king gives me a harder task

A quest that needs completing

I am bruised and covered in cuts

Blunt sword in hand I march

Enemies approach even stronger than before

Slay them

Dodge them

Solve their riddles

I am fatigued

They stab me in the back

They break my sword

Run for dear life

I reach the goal, the quest is done

 

It is the next day

The king gives me a harder task

A quest that needs completing

Broken sword in hand I march

Enemies approach even stronger than before

Slay them

Dodge them

Solve their riddles

I am fatigued

They stab me in the back

They cut of my arm and my leg

Crawl for dear life

Somehow impossibly, I reach the goal, the quest is done

 

It is the next day

The king gives me a harder task

A quest that needs completing
