Shadowed Zothique

Ron Shiflet

Through shadowed aeons I pursue Zothique
For man's ultimate fate to discover,
This last continent with answers I seek,
In the still mist of time seems to hover.
A mystical realm where the sands of time
Inside the last hourglass are falling,
Layered with meaning, oblique and sublime,
As related by spirits now calling.

This vast continent, 'neath dying sun's rays
Where the last role of man is now acted,
Strange, sorcerous times are these final days,
An existence too long now protracted.
The book is read, we now close the cover,
Waiting to embrace our last, dark lover.
