The Canticle of Carbuncle

The Canticle of Carbuncle has been passed down from one generation of Tarutaru to the next since before recorded history.

Once held in the back of a jewelry store Hidden from view and locked up in a chest Now in a ring forged of silver and more On the hand of a princess most regally dressed Soon dropped in palm of a man very poor His ragged life soon to be heavenly blessed

There is tell of a ruby that is
Finding its way to one starting to seek
Hearing those words the voice within does speak

"Carbuncle," it is called
The jewel in which passion flows and grows

Once flowing through the canals that did line
The edges of cities way far out in the West
Now buried beneath barnacles and brine
Under bluest of waves as they foam and they crest
Soon covered by remnants of trees, oak and pine
Reduced to a hollow that mere rot can infest

There is tell of a ruby that
Travels over seas and shores of every kind
Searching for its master, the one that it must find

"Carbuncle," it is called
The stone that has ever shone with the sheen of the sunset

Once hearing tunes of hunger as sung
By chicks snug away in their nest
Now poised before eyes of a goblin so young
He by its fine beauty so duly impressed
Soon round the neck of a maid 'twill be strung
At the end of a shining gold chain shall it rest

There is tell of a ruby that is
Craved by both man and beast, always adored
Testing the master by whom freedom's restored
"Carbuncle," it is called
The gem that time imbues with the hues of the rainbow
