The Carved Kingdom-

By:

A 100 word Location

 

Mountain easels for vanity of kings.
The precious stone squandered for pride of the unworthy.
The chip chip of centuries bringing down the bones of the earth.
Busts and Equestrians, Statues and Bas-reliefs.
All adorn the diminished mountains.
For power, deserved or not, emanates from these works.
Shaped as the stone was shaped, strengthened by the art of stone.
Princes undo the work of Kings - a cycle repeated.
Until now.
A new King. A new Rule. A circle Broken.
A Plan to arise the bones of the earth and make things anew.
The old must perish to nourish the new.

  My attempt at this style, with a bit of odd prose to boot.

I really like it, I like the prose style as well.  So they are going tear down the statues and quarry new stone replace them.   

A brave man to show free verse poetry to crass obvious gamers

Walk without rhythm and you'll never learn.

       By: axlerowes

Arakis's zombie problem went largely ignored, because it was believed that the Shai-Hulud (sand worms) would effectively dispose of the undead walkers. Unfortunately the problem grew until the roving herds of sunburnt ghouls threatened the flow of spice. While observing one of the great reanimated masses over take a Harvester from the safety of an ornithopter, an Imperial Zoologists noted that the sand caked flesh eating revenants walked entirely without rhythm.

Shortly after receiving this report the Bene Gesserits claimed to have a solution to Arakis's hellish resurrections. They asserted to the agents of the great houses that the worms could be drawn to the walkers using an ancient sonic weapon. According to the sisters, exposing the zombies to an antediluvian ballad composed by the great master M. Jackson would force them to step in time.
