There once was a Prestigious Smithy from Evermore,
He had an Apprentice, only one girl and no more.
And so to our Mother, a Child lamented, “I was denied apprenticeship,”
Not for lack of potential, The Smithy’s apprentice was just oh so lax,
So our Mother, Sweet Mother, sent her child by sea-fairing ship,
And they delivered upon the apprentice Sithis’ Deadliest Tax!
Tears in his eyes, the Prestigious Smithy from Evermore,
Did hire another apprentice, one boy, and no more.
And so to our Mother, a Child complained, “Not Worthy! A Head full of Bees!”
Passed up in the newest promotion, greed and envy lay in her eye!
So our Mother, Sweet Mother, sent her child over the tumultuous seas,
And they delivered upon the apprentice a Karmic Knife to his Eye!
Saddened by two fold loss, the Smithy from Evermore,
Did hire another apprentice, one girl, and no more.
But instantly, to our Mother, a Child did cry cry, “No Fair! That should be me!”
They were passed up by their sibling, who once cried out like them. So We,
Were sent by our Mother, Sweet Mother, to cross off this Name,
To deliver upon the apprentice the duty, by now so Mundane.
Fourth Times the Charm, The Smithy hired another,
A man, only one man, perhaps this one would last?
But alas to the Smithy, came the cry to our Mother,
“Death upon the Smithy! His students just won’t last!”
And so upon the Smithy did I descend, armed with my tools,
I would lay upon his shoulders, the sins of these Poor Fools.
