Now for the Picture Prompt Challenge!

As the Dark side fiddled with a violin
a light falling rain started pelting him
with each skilled pull on the rosined bow
the interest in his force started to show

A wicked and haunting melody played
his purpose to make passersby delayed
to put his tune deep into their minds
so he plays, as they leave their cares behind.

He weaves his tune so diligently
it seeps into your mind gracefully
 before you know it the tune sticks with you
welcoming you to the dark side too.



  1. reminds me somehow of the rat catcher of hameln (german fairy tale where the bad boy lures the children of the town away with his flute playing)
    ...and now darth vader...smiles
