The key of the gods

Far back in time, a kingdom flourished,

Its ruler fair and benign, he sat upon 

a gilded throne, his acumen divine,

Until the day he sent his knights, on an

 inadvertent crime,where they stole the key

 to the vault of the Gods, on a raid for  special wine.
Far back in time, a kingdom flourished,

Its ruler fair and benign, he sat upon 

a gilded throne, his acumen divine,

Until the time of the wrath of the gods, 

when chaos ruled  all time, the key to the vault

went missing, a regular paradigm.
Far back in time, a kingdom flourished,

Its ruler fair and benign, he sat upon 

a gilded throne, his acumen divine,

He sent his subjects searching in deserts,

Far and wide, the key is buried in the dirt,

The king  is  totally frantic he even built a shrine.
Far back in time, a kingdom flourished,

Its ruler fair and benign, he sat upon 

a gilded throne, his acumen divine,

Until the day of the catastrophic event,

That wiped his kingdom out, and spread destruction

From the Gods, the volcano was a sign.
Far back in time, a kingdom flourished,

Its ruler fair and benign, he sat upon 

a gilded throne, his acumen divine,

Now archeologists explore the land, 

Thy search for treasure all,  one digs in the dirt

and brings out a key,  hear the king repine.
