Epic: Kaostorm

Rated "G" by the Author.

My attempt at an epic poem. This originally began as a story idea (which is why I still classify it as a short story).

Epic: Kaostorm


I’ve wondered how to classify this poem for many years.  This was written in one evening after a marathon reading of some classic epic poems.  I have always wanted to write a poem like this, just to see if I could carry it all out.  The story will sound familiar and unfamiliar to fans of epic poetry.  I have always wondered if it was a finished piece or if I could expand on the story some more.  So I offer you this version, complete presently, but maybe still incomplete in the depths of my mind.

In the beginning …

It all began with a spark
And everything fell into place
Land in water
Water engulfed by land

Peace prevailed by chaos
What was, was not
Jalidi, Lord of Chaos
Reigned supreme

But time to regress
Before chaos
Before peace before time

Jabari, Master of Order was all
Only specks and pieces existed
In nothingness
Life was nurtured

Feed on the most horrid
Lies and false confessions
Order is the way
The way is the light

Star light, star bright
Son of Chaos, Sha’aun, shines supreme
Luriane, the evening star, bride of Jabari
Dimmed by comparison

Out of nothing
Everything rose, brought forth
Phoenix of fiery birth
Blood & water, unmixed, flowed

Jabari and Luriane converse
Bringing damnation on Sha’aun
O’ brave warrior beware

Jabari cursed the bright star
And suddenly the light fled
Banished to the depths
Of the blackest holes

Luriane usurped the night-light
But all joy-light was blackened
A brave warrior silent
The great inspirer silent

Woe to the damner of light
Woe unto the bride of the demon
Woe unto the unholy pair
Woe unto Jabari

Raogun was called for the
From his armory of
Gold, silver, blood & steel
Beware all, death has arisen

Armored in the blackest black
Riding on a fiery steed
Unholy chills precede him
Death and destruction in his wake

Jabari, Lord of Order, cowed
Behind stone walls
The embodiment of war had come
Only chaos could follow

Luriane was the first to fall
Chained for eternity
To the throne of Mephistophelis
In the deepest bowels of hell

The mighty warrior star strides forth
Raogun cease your destruction
Luriane has been punished
Jabari is to reign supreme

The sky burned with fire
The armored devil vents his rage
But desists he does
For the mighty warrior has spoken

Chaos put on hold
For now and awhile
But the devil army still sits
Beyond the horizon of light

Soon Chaos Lord, son
Order shall fall
Sha’aun shall lead
The devil army to victory

Unity of equals commence
Sha’aun joins with Attalah
Lady of the soil
The life giver

Jabari is threatened
But still stays his wrath
For Jalidi, Lord of Chaos, lingers near
Raogun storms through venues of gold

Fluids flow freely
Life comes forth
Four strikes of lightening
Greatness is summoned

Zhangtes, The Supreme Metal smith
Embodiment of strength, power and glory
Vestia, Goddess of Night and Dreams
Mistress of the black fog

Madonna, living love and erotica
Mistress of heart and phallus
Omavi, The Trickster
Messenger, healer, deceiver

All spawn of the warrior star
Together they are the essence of life
Together they nurture life
Jabari saw greatness crumbling

He who possesses the great hammer
Shall rule the universe
He who possesses this hammer
Made from the blood and sweat of Zhangtes

Lord Zhangtes of the thunder
Do your magi
Create from the hardest metal
An instrument of great power

Great Zhangtes, the thunderer
Bring for the hammer of destiny
Of power and justice
Bring forth the bonebreaker

The sun shatterer
Zhangtes, from your hot hearth
Bring it forth
It shall be the harbinger of storms

It shall possess the passion of Madonna
The darkness of Vestia
The light of Sha’aun
The speed of Omavi

Bring forth from fiery semblance
Of the fiercest infernos
Bring forth, o great Zhangtes
Bring forth from the lions of your father

The union of the greatest good
And the darkest evil
Order bound to chaos
Forged from metal, blood & tears

Metal from the heart of Mephistophelis
Blood from the veins of Attalah
Tears from the chains of Luriane
Ultimate power from ultimate pain

Bring forth, Zhangtes, bring forth
Take life from the blackest death
Hades be warned
The phallus of Sha’aun will be held high

The hammer of Zhangtes
Is complete
Let all praise
In the womb of Attalah it shall be placed

It shall signify power
And ultimate justice
Whosoever possesses it
Shall rule

Only he born to rule can possess it
Only he with heart
Can bring forth its song
The song will bring nirvana

But what shall it be called
A name of power
A name of fear
A name of fiery rebirth

Come forth, Kaostorm
A name of power, fear & rebirth
In the womb of Attalah
Shall you dwell

O’ mighty champion
The Kaostorm calls
Listen to the voice of thunder
The lightning calls

The Lord of Order sat and pondered
How to hold together his rule
Falling apart
Coming apart by the seams

The warrior comes before Jabari
The inspirer speaks of Zhangtes’s tool
Ultimately only two can wield the hammer
Only one will have the power

Kaostorm shall be the key
Only the worthy can enter the womb
Only the worthy can wield the power
Only the worthy

Only those of blood and fire
Will compete for the hammer
Only the phoenix spawn
Can challenge the fire

Four can find it, in its rest
Only one worthy can remove it
Great battles are to come
Blood, sweat and tears shall shed

Who are the four?  Jabari questioned
The light and the ruler
The upstart and the prisoner
Four of phoenix spawn

The warlord is the gatekeeper
The trickster holds the key
The thunderer is the maker
The lifegiver the protector

But one of the four is forever in chains
The prisoner with the black heart
Bound to the jailer, Mephistophelis
That leaves only three

Three the power struggle
But only one can rule
The light can be tainted
So powerful is this tool

A struggle of classic proportions
Two great forces
Meet on dark plains
O what a great battle that will be

The trickster visits chaos
With an important tale to weave
Listen Jalidi, listen and heed

Jalidi feels the he great call
What is this Kaostorm
It is a weapon of great power
Whosoever possesses it shall rule

Four have the blood
Only two have the spirit
Two great forces shall clash
The victor shall be all-powerful

One and a thousand celestial orbits
Blood bathed the great land
Rivers ran sweat and tears
The warrior and the warlord meet spear in hand

The gatekeeper falls
Lord Chaos rode on Master Order
On the plains of Attalah
All drenched with blood and tears

Kaostorm, O’ Kaostorm
Sing us your song
Give us your strength
To fight this fight on

Kaostorm, O’ Kaostorm
Voice as strong as the storm
Show us your champion
And forever rule he shall

Jalidi back on the horizon
Jabari back on the hill
Awaiting the final battle
Attempting the final kill

The mighty elementals
Fire, Earth, Water and Wind
All shudder in terror
Of this battle yet to unfold

They call – their cries of terror
Tot, the sun god up high
The fear for sweet Attalah
They pray for their mother’s life

From his great throne the sun god comes
He orders the battle cease
On sacred ground at days end
The ruler and the upstart shall meet

There will be a great battle
Songs will be sung on far
Chaos and Order fight to wield
The mighty Kaostorm

For five and a hundred celestial orbits
The great forces fought
The earth shuddered at the fury
The sky hide from their rage

Blood and fire was all that could be seen
Blood from the noblest veins
Fire from the belly of the beast
Phoenix spawn battle the heat

And then a loud sound shattered
The elements rose and looked
The battle has ended
The victor shall rule

Amid all blood and fire
The triumphant one there he stood
His hand held up to the heavens
The defeated in the dirt

From the womb of Attalah
Hear the mighty Kaostorm’s cry
Coming to claim its master
To Hades the defeated fell

The warlord laid dejected
The warrior star brilliantly shines
The star spawn all stared, waited
For the victor to claim his prize

The sky turns blood red
Hear the Sun God cry
The Lord of Chaos victorious
The Master of Order has lost

Jalidi stands triumphant
He was the worthy one
Jabari defeated, full of shame
Besides his queen, he will share her chains

O mighty Stormbeaker
Heed your champion’s call
The upstart stands triumphant
The ruler has lost

All praise the upstart
Before him Sha’aun kneeled
All his brilliance was returned
The curse of Jabari overturned

The light adored him
The phoenix crowned him
Lord of all
Emperor of forever

The upstart and the hammer
The peace that Chaos bought
What was became
What is, was not

Heed the Kaostorm’s song
