Song of the Fairies
If you would live on Fairy-land, human, know the code:
Seeing fairies in procession, kindly leave the road
Make way for the Folk as they go by in shiny light
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
Invite us to all your weddings – we might come, or not
To ignore us is to spite us even if we’ve got
a pony as a groom’s gift, and earrings for the bride
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
A knife should not be left in meat, salt not on the floor
Silver is an offence: don’t place it on the door
Leave no hatchet in the log, leave not your tools outside
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
Following these Fairy rules, our peace can’t be disturbed
We reward humanity with luck and healing herbs
Bronze torcs for giving fairies a shelter from the cold
and sure death for those who come and dare to steal our gold.
We charm the snakes, we tell the wolves whom they cannot bite
No lightning strike

Mutiny on the Way to Damocles
    “Mrs. Orientation Video kindly sends her regards, seeing as she couldn’t be here tonight – courtesy of you fine lot not respecting ‘lights out’ regulations and in so doing, losing your holovid privileges for the rest of the day.” Warden Gobelin seemed to grin behind his respirator mask when he swam further down to hook a foot behind the floor rail and steady himself. “Which is a shame, because we arrive at Damocles station in three hours.”
O’Byrne resented the Warden for exactly this type of thing – rather than doing his job keeping the peace, he let things get out of hand and then dared to gloat from behind his pane of impact glass. His penalties for disobedience were nothing more than petty pestering. But O’Byrne be damned if he and the other inmates weren’t fed up with withheld desserts, stupid lights-out rules and now removing any chance of watching a movie for the last time before checking into t

Take your hands off of the torch, sir – slowly
And the keyboard; delete that tweet
Now trending: being sick of complaints
(the problem was Too Long; Didn't Read)
There is no elephant in the chatroom
and they are no pachyderm.
Clean the VR off your goggles
– we might not survive a second term.
Misantropy as an exception,
there's nothing inborn you must hide.
This wasn't about you last time I looked;
you want a parade? Have some pride.

In A Land Far, Far A-whey
Marigold was being wedded off to this bloke who grew funny-shaped turnips for a living, so naturally the presents had to have that certain je-ne-sais-quoi which a household with this kind of creativity would appreciate.
Ma and Da brought the goat that yee-hawed, festooned with ribbons and artichoke flowers; Peet had dyed a turtle-dove and Tollie, Jen and Mabe all gave knitted kitchenware and farming tool cosies. There was a parsnip rack from Uncle Liam, while Aunt Meary and her husband had just brought themselves which oh, they shouldn't have. Lastly Nan, ever the frugal one, had remembered the bucketful of milk misplaced and retrieved from behind the stack of wood last spring, completely transmogified and strangely aromatic after pondering for so long on what to do with it. After all, one does not simply throw out a whole bucketful of milk, no matter the state - liquid, solid - it happens to be in.
And so they ate it at the feast, and it was delicious.

Trojan refrain: a 3-way collaboration
Hey, wassup my Agamemnon
how does the looting go?
Have the lobbyists settled on
a puppet for the show
when you're the Hellespont police?
How about Helen of Greece?
Fair like Justice
fair like Justice
and δημοκρατία and Peace?
Hey, wassup my Agamemnon?
Does the dear daughter know
Your aircraft-carriers won’t run
Without some bloodflow?
"Can bank accounts become obese
Feeding like grubs off her decease?"!
Can bank accounts
Can bank accounts
Make oil-gorged Θέμις grin at vice?
hey, wassup my Agamemnon?
was your death a surprise?
did you sense that dark pall anon?
did you fail to surmise
it was all greek, your cuckold's fate,
that left you on Charon to wait?
it was all greek,
it was all greek,
when you and Ὀδυσσεύς did prate.

Poetry And Me
You may say I'm cheap
and not too deep
but that's just you and this is me:
I'm low-hanging fruit on the poet-tree

Thank you for suggesting my story for a DD. That's the second DD I've got out of The Gauntlet ^_^  :dummy with a sword:  
BATTLEFAIRIES Featured By Owner 3 days ago
I'm not going to lie, the Gauntlet's results left me reeling! So much good stuff in there like you wouldn't believe, and that with all the restrictions, even, wow!
Your mind works in wondrous ways and even if you ended up getting nine out of nine DD's out of it, I wouldn't want it any other way. Respect where due!

Not sure where else to thank you so... thank you so much for suggesting my work for (and actually getting) a DD! I remember checking out DA years ago looking at the daily deviations, never actually thought I would get my own one day Heart 
BATTLEFAIRIES Featured By Owner May 6, 2018
Haha, no problem! When I see something as nice I just have to suggest it for a DD, youknow...!
I hope it'll help you get the extra recognition you deserve :iconflowersplz:

OH so cool!  I get to ask the djinn a question?! Yay!  But what you don't realize is that the Djinn has already granted me a wish.  You have officially become my 70th watcher.  I was hoping to get that 70th watch today.  I will have to be thinking of what to ask, and I will come take a look at your gallery later when I have more time!  NIce to meet you.  After all frogs and fae have a long history together.  There is a reason fairy circles are made of TOAD stools.  Toads have long been prized by the fae as watchmen.  Of course uninformed human ignore our calls, but the fae can speak all manner of natural languages.  Our warning cries allow them not to be caught unawares by bumbling humans and as a reward for our services we have been given some magic ourselves.  I think we will get allong swimmingly!Frog Emoji-42 (Waving) [V3]  
BATTLEFAIRIES Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2018
Yes, the croaks of the frog keep the fairies from croaking!

I wish you plenty more watchers; your work deserves to be seen by everyone. I think it's odd you've managed to fly under my radar for so long; it's not often I meet a new person worth watching...!
