Eleven - The Apprentice


     Remind me to sing you this song someday: it's a Scotch-Irish sort of murder ballad I wrote in high school about a guy who becomes convinced his fiancee is fooling around on him, so he pays a witch to turn him into a werewolf and tears the fiancee apart only to discover that he's been completely mistaken about everything that's been going on.

     Or something like that. I wrote about 30 verses in one of my little notebooks before I got bored and never even got to the whole tearing apart scene, if I recall correctly: this is the first verse Tharka's singing here.

     And I'm sure we've seen a snake guy dressed like this before somewhere, haven't we?
