Primarily written for Chrono Compendium’s Dream Splash entry, inspired by the Golems from the game Chrono Trigger (as well as actual golems from old folklores), I’m actually considering collaborating with a musician to turn this into an original song.

(Pseudo-Rap) Ring Around The Roses — Wedding Tribute version

This is perhaps the first time I’ve tried to seriously write a rap. There are two versions of this pseudo-rap, this one being the first.

The Chicken and the Road

Why did the chicken cross the road?
It did not.

There IS no other side.

Point that one voice from the din
That encourages me on
To the road of a new dawn.
