Tavern at the Edge of the World


  • Parent: Writings
  • Author: Taurean the Bard

“Some say that there is a Tavern at the Edge of the World,
I know no reason that it should not be.
In the tales that they tell that have all swirled,
No one flocks to it and none do flee.

I know of this Tavern at the Edge of World,
Where heroes and saints do gather around.
It will last until the last pages have curled,
And the last of the kings has been crowned.

Across the room from the heroes and saints,
Sit the vilest villains, all plans unfurled.
Yet all sit together without any complaints,
At the Tavern at the Edge of the World.

When your songs have been sung and your stories told,
And the last lady of the dance has been twirled,
You may find yourself retired and getting old,
Spending your last at the Tavern at the Edge of the World."
