  • the centaur's stance
    by Linda M. Crate

    the bards always left them out
    of their songs, they sang instead
    of dragons and damsels and the
    bravest of men; they forgot they
    won their war with the aid of
    the centaurs, the humans were
    a woefully forgetful race --
    they forgot the evil foe of the
    blood spattered unicorn of
    purple hue, flesh of humans
    held betwixt their fangs and the
    bones crushed beneath their hooves --
    the centaurs read the stars, and
    prevented entropy from reigning
    upon them, next time they thought
    that perhaps they should allow
    the humans to be wiped out for they
    created as much discord as the
    harpies and the chimeras among
    their own race; their lilt more dulcet
    than that of a roaring dragon.
