In the Shadow of the Gods

Overbent and between two eternal truths we all know well an old woman
with knives for teeth and a nephew whose soul hides seven ways—stealing
maidens eating princes

—a dashing hiding ravishing game through old forests cold in the shadow
of gods and mountains. Novelty to follow after them—creating
ghosts and victims flit.

Princes ate and virgins taken—lead-out and reverse those dark variations
of life by encircling two immortal lies well known and—overbending
monsters save us.
