Deep and dark in the troll's home
Cold as devil's bone.
Shrill as a cruel witch's shriek,
Sounding ever-deathly bleak.
Murderous as a stolen life,
Violent as a cheated wife.
Smell of death, decay and rot,
Things every living being fought.
Fierce as an eagle's cry,
Wicked as a villain, sly.
Sharp and piercing stab of distrust,
Of malevolent disgust.
Unforgiving and black as blight,
Howls the troll song of the night.
