The Prophetic Conqueror

He conquered territories across the world.
His armies killed at least 5% of the total human population at the time.
He was feared across the Eurasia.
Before he died, Tamerlane told his people,
I die, but when I rise from the dead, the world will tremble.
He didn't return.  But by a curse, he unleashed more death.

His name did not
Measure his power
Timur the Lame
Slayer of the world
Destroyer of hope
Bringer of sorrow
Bearer of the curse
He brought doom
To the world
In life
In death
None before him
None since
And only he
Has brought such sorrow
Since his curse born
To the children of man
