the other kingdom

what happens when you fall inside the whale
is not a secret hidden cities there
filled with the sorts of beings you'd beware
if met with in the normal kind of tale
angels and demons jointly will assail
your tender hide but soon you will not care
but be brought into a much stranger air
safe and secure from any rain or gale
beyond this place no man has dared to go
so there is no report that i could bring
of wonders of of blandness to assuage
your rising fears there still is much to know
of all the magics that the heathen sing
and certainties that come from distant age
