Once a star that enameled the sky
Came down to greet the folks who dwell on earth
That’s when a boy sensed its magic so spry
The heav’nly body then consumed his heart!
Astral magic flew astoundingly high
Henceforth, Calcifer resided in a hearth.
Calcifer then roughcasted a castle
That walked for miles throughout the vast terrains
The boy became a wizard with a vassal
And began their journey of many tales
Practicin’ spells high-brow like a tassel
Appeared as free but, in fact, wreathed by chains
Of magic so dark and mysterious
Reflected in the wizard’s carefree life
Whose antics made the queen so furious
She sent her minions to arrest him
Dark critters of the night – insidious
From this day on, he was plagued by strife
Calcifer drew in more unpleasantries:
The abominable Witch of the Waste!
She would’t vanish from an oncoming breeze
Doused in wrath, pride, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust
A wretched soul no man could ever please
Who could never climb the queen’s stairs in haste
Do not be afraid, here comes our lady,
Whose eyes transcend the passage of time
Vanquishin’ all the filth and the shady
Her name is Sophie, our dame of the weak
Reliably wise from twenty to eighty
Since she present’st a pure unstained prime*
O return the flame back to the night sky
The day she makes whole the heartless is nigh!
The rhyme scheme is in ABACAB; I got the idea from the song ABACAB by Genesis. The song isn’t that great.
