The Hanged King's Comedy

The spiteful's torment shall permit
Glom of power whence the worlds split.

And black stars hate without relent;
The King's pernicious game is spent.

Failed usurper ten trillion times,
Fueled by those two who sinned no crimes.

So now my reign stands to begin,
Anguish, the court of strife and sin.

Existence within my control,
Agony wracking every soul.

Thus, I will feed the king his sin,
To die 'till he can't die again!

Thereafter I will take my throne,
All flesh having been stripped to bone.
All lives are pawns of the Anguished King's
To suffer and die on my puppet-strings.

The story thus far…

"How many times had he read that book? How long have I been here, to forget it all? He could tell not how long he sat on the stair, a wretched and unspeakable thing. He turned at length to the sound of bony footfalls from behind."

"Confused, pained wails and screeches echoed throughout the hallway; A symphony for the Anguished Lord. Trembling, wet with blood as red as midnight, it despaired that it did not die. It languished, terrified, knowing it was alone.

And then it wasn't."

Stars shine down on the fifth night. A black cloud through which the stars can see. The doctor, with no work remaining for him, left the backwater shanty church.
