A Song About the Tower

Post by Quintilius » Mon Mar 02, 2020 2:56 pm

An Aes Sedai came our way
From an inn near town at the close of day
She said my Sally you're a fine young lass
Would you like to learn to channel in a Tower class?
With a golden ring and a fine cut dress
And a Warder at your shoulder
The white dress she took and she kissed the book
Oh poor Sally what'll happen to ya?

The Aes Sedai strolled away
From the Inn near town at the break of day
Sally came too with nary a fright
She was off to be an Aes Sedai to go fighting for the Light.
In a far off war in a far off land
To face the foreign soldier
But how will you fare when there's steel in the air
Oh poor Sally what'll happen to ya?

The sun rose high on a barren land
Where a ter'angreal made a menacing stand
There were three glowing rings and three Sedai too
Trollocs and dangers thrusting through.
Poor Sally fell and the day was done
Now the Power is closed off to ya
Now your learnin' is done and they're sending you home
Oh poor Sally what'll happen to ya?

They said she was brave and not to grieve
For the two ruined legs and the empty sleeves
Took her home and they set her down
With a Tower pension and a letter to her town.
But you haven't an arm, you haven't a leg
Cut off from the Source forever
You'll have to go out on the streets and beg
Oh poor Sally what'll happen to ya?

An Aes Sedai came our way
From an inn near town at the close of day
She said my Sally you're a fine young lass
Would you like to learn to channel in a Tower class?
With a golden ring and a fine cut dress
And a Warder at your shoulder
The white dress she took and she kissed the book
Oh poor Sally what'll happen to ya?
