"A Dark Faery Tale" #6: The Warrior Princess

A warrior of her own breed,
born by a willow tree,
fed to the wolves
and she's slain all three.
They call her Pocahontas,
daughter of the Indian Chief.
She wears the skulls of those
whose bones she did beat,
and their blood covers her
from head to feet.
She carries a spear and a knife,
no one has ever been able to defeat.
Her only friend, a hungry raccoon,
human flesh he does eat.
She fell in love with an outsider once.
He came from across the sea.
But his intentions were cruel,
though she refused to see.
Until that fatal night,
he murdered Daddy.
Furious, Pocahontas let out
a great war scream,
and went on a rampage,
killing every body.
The pilgrims did not win that day.
Her land would not go for free.
A price had to be paid,
and their souls it would be.
But poor John Smith,
was not given that luxury.
He would forever be indebted to her,
forever tortured, her slave for all eternity.

I did like the Pocahontas original though it was for kids, and probably aimed at very young audiences. Your blood-soaked princess above might be closer to the real thing. And how many people would feel the same about her if she had gone on a rampage. I better go and read her proper bio now before I become twisted. LOL.

Great hub as always, Nikki. I can't wait for how you do the treatment for Bambi, but I imagine it might be like the South park Forest Critters. ROFL. Brillo. :)

So you're turning all of the classic fairy tales upside down. Coolness.

I liked this; you have a good handle on your words. Keep it up and good luck with the Beauty and Beast poem.

Pochahontas is a rough sister. I'm amazed at how you take these familiar characters and give them a whole new twist. Well done!

Haha, wow Nikki...

This is my favorite of them all. You were very skilled with staying on topic, and making them so brutal. Very nice...

I can't help but laugh at them, like I told you, but I assure you, the writing is very talented and these are entertaining and well done.

:]

OK, I'm finally here...

I've been holding back waiting to run with you shexy. Now I am ready...

I know I'm starting at the more recent dark end, but I'll work my way back to the start of your bend, because, as you'll see, I believe most strongly in only but thee.

Here is the power, the strength we all need. I run at your side, together we bleed.

The world is most vicious, each day it becomes worse, so no better salvation than sweet tales now deadly discourse.

There is no one stronger, and quicker in might, than this writer Nikki, a warrior tonight. For as the bright moon now hides for fear of her sight, a young warrior Nikki wields words of great might.

So I run at her side, through shadows that hide, for watch out cruel world, new warriors now cry, "beware all who hear, no injustice shall long live for righteous is now only but fear."
