Extracts from this document...


Suyash Goenka English H L Write a creative essay using a line or lines from Pablo Neruda's poems. In the �?th century, there lived a king called Takshin. He was king of the entire Yegiusqihi region located in the central part of the continent of Enipomoelia. He had a number of worthy men in his court, including a musician, a poet, a finance minister, an administrative advisor, a jester, a lieutenant, and a few others. King Takshin's uncle, King Qodnim had been the king before him. He had been a great king who was loved by his people for his policies and his sense of justice. There was a rumour that he had disguised himself as a peasant to catch a landlord who was known to exploit peasants. Besides, he also personally listened to problems of the people once in a month. ...read more.

He reached his palace on the plains below humiliated, and desperate for vengeance. However, the worst was yet to come.

The king's favourite poet no longer spoke happy verses, but instead said: "Come and see the blood in the streets, Come and see the blood in the streets, Come and see the blood in the streets!". The king realized that since the day he had murdered his uncle, his kingdom was doomed. He then killed himself, being left with no other option.
