RUKI DAY SPECIAL
The Halloween Ruki
Empty knock upon the door,
On such halloween eve.
Wrapped in silky bandages,
Candy it hopes to retrieve.
Glaring eyes with dusty skin,
Waiting for a chance.
For when the victim reveals the door,
It's ensnared within a trance.
A dazzling moon amongst cotton clouds,
Sets the scene for a perfect night.
To scare all innocent, young and old,
A shocking, wondrous fright.
Its curse doth last upon the night,
Freeing skeletal souls.
Jumping shadows upon the ground,
Using frightful cajoles.
A dire moan moves though the air,
Then dies down beneath the fog.
For all who hear the Ruki's wrath
Is cursed with a burdenous clog.
The Desert Ruki
Far away, in dusty lands
Of golden dunes and shifting sands
There lived a Desert Ruki bold
With bronzed limbs and eyes of gold
He veered and vanished, seldom spoke
Once when he tried, his voice broke
By day he scaled the copper hills
By night scrabbled in sandy fields
Searching ceaselessly, aims unknown
In places where no Pteri has flown
On scorching days when mutant Lennies whirled
In flaming sky and burnt sand swirled
He dragged his sturdy toughened feet
Across the expanse where sand and sky meet
And on chill nights with round wan moon
He curled up in a taut cocoon
And traveled on, 'spite wind or rain
'Til one day saw it on the main
His eyes were cloaked, his lips dust-dry
His feelers no longer to the sky
But he went on, the Desert Ruki did he
Til he came to the foot of a tower silv'ry
He lifted his eyes to Coltzan's Shrine
And collapsed forever without a whine
Thousand years later, 'twas reduced to bones
And even later the white shafts had gone
And no one remembers the Desert Ruki
Save one, who waxes lyrical; me
For on chill nights, when cold drapes the land
The Desert Ruki stalks across the sand
A Ruki, Bound
Of ancient beast do fables tell,
A monster, dark and old.
Some nightmares are best just left,
And some tales shan't be told.
The softest thud of each footfall,
Does sound in empty tomb.
A wicked groan shall linger here,
In shadows, he shall loom.
From insect form does linen drag,
Bandaged from head to toes.
Some unravel as he walks,
And trip him as goes.
Antenna wrapped in strands of white,
So frightening are his cries.
Form is hidden, all except,
The glow of wicked eyes.
Like dual orbs of a pallid hue,
They gleam from shadowed face.
Form concealed yet these glow strong,
A light in darkest space.
Once a Ruki, this beast was,
The stories do drift 'round.
Now a nightmare, cast in white,
A mummy, bandage bound.
The scourge who walks each ancient tomb,
His warning? Rumbling groan.
Hear it and gather your wits,
It means you're not alone.
Scatter, stumble to the door,
Avoid those two bleak lights.
The gaze my friend, doth draw you in,
You're trapped in Ruki's sights.
A Ruki's Armour
A Ruki's Armour - proud and strong
Is special and quite rare.
It's shined daily and worn with pride
By Ruki everywhere.
A Ruki's Armour - thick and sure,
Is made for desert heat.
A better protector you will not find,
For this, you cannot beat!
A Ruki's Armour - hard and cool,
Perfect for the hot sun.
Reflects the rays and keeps them soothed,
Makes the Lost Desert quite fun!
A Ruki's Armour - rigid and sound,
Is a Ruki's pride and joy.
Well groomed and well looked after,
This strong armour's not a toy!
A Ruki's Armour - true and grand,
If you get the chance to see,
Is made just for the Ruki,
And it fits them perfectly!
My Ruki in the sun
The games we play
They last all day
Yeah you're a lot of fun
Your feet in burnished gold
The desert glow, it suits you so
By pyramids a thousand years old
Where shall we go this time?
Explore a tomb, or a Qasalan Shrine?
What treasures shall we find?
Just thought I'd let you know
Outta all the pets
You're the best
(As far as Ruki go)
