The Fall of the Goblin Kingdom

by Christian Thomas Golden

Mountains Torres del Paine

Hobbled goblins sobbing,
moaning, groaning
in defeat.

The king of all the Over-Lands
declared them obsolete.

“No longer shall we fear
these nasty, gnarly, tooth-gnashing gnats!
Find them, bind them, grind them,
serve them to our hungry cats!

The goblin king collapsed upon
his rusted goblin throne.
Soon thereafter died the queen;
she could not live alone.

Hobbled goblins sobbing,
moaning, groaning
in defeat.

Hobbled is just as it sounds: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/sounds-right/
