People knew he was not from Sparta.

But they did not want to know why he was there.

Or why he looked that way.

But they couldn’t help wondering what happened to him before

So they followed him slowly along the streets.

Step by step they watched him crawl.

He moaned to himself, in an ice-cold voice.

A moan of pain, a moan of torment, a moan of an icy past.

The people were curious and hoped to find out more...

Then suddenly, he stopped on the cold hard stones.

He opened what was left of his decayed mouth.

It was bloodied from some battle long long ago.

But it was also dark blue and partly frozen from some recent event.

The people looked closer and closer at his twisted shape

Shocked, they moved closer to hear what he might say.

He whispered a story that no-one would ever forget

Because when they heard it, they felt as cold as ice.

And their red lips soon turned as blue as a frozen moon

In the northern lands, there was a great kingdom, he said.
