A Flaming Load of Bull - Scribe Contest X entryPappa Midnight 08-08-2017

This was my entry for the "Scribe Contest X". It's about a tongue in cheek song performed by a group of young CDs questioning whether Hashut is actually real. Unfortunately it has dropped the performers into a spot of bother!
As I wrote it I had visions of a crusty old stone-faced priest interrogating a young Dawi Zharr who is sporting a ridiculous mohawk, short beard, piercings and tattoos.

A Flaming Load of Bull

“Evidential transcript number one. I submit to you the so-called song that the accused and co-conspirators performed on the steps of the Grand Ziggurat yesterday evening. They claim to be in a metal band, whatever that is.”

Faster than an Eldritch spell
You are terrifying, beautiful
Blazing, mighty Lord of Hell
And a flaming load of bull!

Master of Dawi Zharr pulling my chain
You’re twisting reality and opening doors
Blinded by you, I fight through the pain
Just say my name, then I’ll scream yours
Hashut!
Hashut!
Just say my name, then I’ll scream yours
Hashut!
Hashut!
A flaming load of bull!

A mighty daemon nestled between dead and alive
A fiery god-beast - no portents, no signs
Day of judgement, but will our prince arrive
Eventually, we’re all buried in the mines

When the mountain starts to crack, there’s no use turning back
'Cause I just had to see, was Hashut really watching me?
In the ash and mist reality twists
Was all this well, or just some kind of spell?
Hashut!
Hashut!
Just say my name, then I’ll scream yours
Hashut!
Hashut!
Where are you?

A flaming load of bull!
(Guitar Solo)

On the holy Plain of Zharr
Prophets raise the battle cry
Ten thousand foes come from afar
But do we pray to an empty sky?

A flaming load of bull!

Flaming bull…bull…bull, flaming bull..bull..bull ( Fade )

“As you can see, this vile blasphemy calls into question the very existence of our divine master! Have you anything to say for yourself, vile worm?”

This was one of my vote-things.

I enjoyed the lyric working to the message (dat title pun especially) and how it was received by the priest.

Great stuff! Happy
