The Rat

The ominous poem composed for the dread and fear of Crassus Baal the Rat. A demon who gambles and seduces. He makes his victims destroy themselves, rather than by sheer force.

By the gods

The rat comes to scratch at the door again

He comes in red silk clothes

With feet of hooves

And head of vermin

To dance and deal

To wreck and cheat

His power is truest deceit

For it is not the bellowing and thundering storm

But the precise and silent chisel

That brings down towers and kingdoms

So hold fast the doorframe

And do not let him in

For once his whisper is eared

None can withstand

The seduction of the rat

Lest you hear the rat’s true name

Crassus Baal
