Avenging Phoenix Rises To Slay, Part One
(Fiery birth of and her just cause)

Phoenix rose from dark ashes of defeat
seven decades of dawns destined to greet
For vengeance to be taken, years cut short
her true sword would meet nobles of King's court
Bird of fire, seared in hottest of flames
she returned, to destroy a few bad names
Her mother's life had been stolen from her
other great tragedies, were now a blur

Magnificent strength and bright golden wings
with each avenging death, her song she sings
Her tears soaked, evil victims she had slain
heart crying out, remove each blackened stain
Each attacker destroyed, her power grew
how great its growth, even she had no clue
For fire in her heart blinded pity
she burnt king's men and whole of his city

As her vengeance raged, her armor grew red
from blood and guts of her victims cut dead
Each new dawn she searched for the hiding few
closer to king's head, more her anger grew
At last when her wrath had reached fevered pitch
king's fortress hideout, revealed by a snitch
That dawn in haste, away to slay she flew
Through soft clouds and brilliant sky-glow so blue
