Skies Darken – The Charnal House

20 men take their rest
tucked up for the night in bed
ice on the windows frost in the air
cold that stirs the wolf in his lair

20 men asleep
tucked up for the night in dreams
ice on the pillow frost in the sheets
cold that comes from darkness unseen

humpty dumpty on the wall
humpty dumpty slips and falls down
all the king’s horses and his men
couldn’t put humpty back again
no brown paper vinegar

20 men at rest
tucked up for the night quite dead
ice covers over their mortal remains
stars that fall from heaven unclean

20 men in graves
their bones and their flesh decay
trapped in the shadows cast out in the night
stars that fall from heaven in chains

humpty dumpty on the wall
humpty dumpty slips and falls down
all the king’s horses and his men
couldn’t put humpty back again
no brown paper vinegar
