I've always found prophecies a real bore.
Just the same old repitition I fear to admit.
It's as if no one around is original anymore.
There is great evil, and a hero must typically defeat it.
The all time bad hides behind shadows, with a legion.
Probably wielding powerful magic, or just really intimidating.
A king or queen, being killed as the villain dominates their region.
The visuals could be stunning, so don't take this as mindless hating.
The hero is the least you'd expect, a real whimp or clutz.
They're just randomly shepherded away by a wise father figure.
They're a failure during training, deeming the old man nuts.
Only to find out he's been killed, the hero's opinion now reconfigured.
If this was real life, they'd just run home to curl up and cry.
But that'd ruin the ending of the story, heh, that ain't a lie.
