An Ode to Zenda’s Fall

Zenda was a bard
She fled the fall of Walton
She fled to Rebelton
And settled in Troll’s Bridge


None did play 
The dulcimer 
So sweetly as Zenda
Zenda the bard


Zenda married Manty
Manitowoc the rogue
Zenda loved Manty
As only a bard can love


None did play 
The dulcimer 
So sweetly as Zenda
Zenda the bard


Zenda lost Manty in Walton
But she never lost hope
Zenda loved Manty
As only a bard can love


None did play 
The dulcimer 
So sweetly as Zenda
Zenda the bard


Orcs and trolls
came to Troll’s Bridge
Zenda played her Dulcimer
She slew the Orcs that slew her too


None did play 
The dulcimer 
So sweetly as Zenda
Zenda the bard


Zenda did fall
before the orcs cruel blades
But Zenda’s love
bore her up


None did play 
The dulcimer 
So sweetly as Zenda
Zenda the bard


Now Zenda waits for Manty
Great Zenda’s ghost
Zenda loved Manty
As only a bard can love
