Based on the story, "Beowulf"


Gems heaped in piles upon the breast of the king

The funeral of Scyld

Sprung from his loins, the royal house of the Danes

Beset by Grendel

The Danes stand no chance against the scion of Cain

Beowulf must set sail to see the beast is slain

Bringing a wrath of fire against the enemy

Geats lay in wait all through the night

When Grendel returns, their champion he’ll fight

They grapple in arms, but without an arm

The villain must flee, though mortal may be his harm

Mother’s wrath stirred awake

She surfaces in her lake

Midnight abductor

She takes the king’s counsellor

The champion must swim deep in the fen

He battles the monster’s mother in her den

Her blood rots a sword completely away

The Geats and the Danes have found victory this day

Years down the road, the champion is become king

Through blood and war

Now he must face the greatest fight of his life

The man-slaying wyrm

Now as his sword is shattered the dragon sees its chance

Champion and monster both perish in their dance

Bringing our tale from funeral to funeral
