War of Souls and Ham

by Trampas Whiteman, Kipper Snifferdoo, Matt


(To the beat of Green Eggs and Ham, with the humblest of apologies to Dr. Seuss.)

Frump: That Sam-I-Know, That Sam-I-Know
I do not like that Sam-I-Know

Sam-I-Know: Do you like the War of Souls?

Frump: I do not like the War of Souls
I do not like it, Sam-I-Know

Sam-I-Know: Do you like it with new magic?
Would you like it if the heroes were tragic?

Frump: Please don't write it with new magic.
It isn't right, and that's what's tragic.

Sam-I-Know: Would you read it with a dragon?
Here, let me pour you a flagon.

Frump: I would not read it with a dragon.
I do not care to drink a flagon.
You have no clue how to write the new magic.
You guys are whacked, and the story is what's tragic.

Sam-I-Know: Would you read it with a gnome?
Would you read it at his home?

Frump: I would not read it with a gnome.
I do not care to see his home.

You guys are crazy, and the story is tragic.

Sam-I-Know: Lots of people like it, they do.
It's on the NY Bestsellers list too.

Frump: The Bestsellers list? Well that means zip!
Those sheep they call fans aren't hip.

Sam-I-Know: Would read it with a kender?
Could you read it on a bender?

Frump: I will not will not with a kender.
I might consider it on a bender.

Sam-I-Know: What if they killed Takhisis?
That old Paladine's nemesis?

Frump: I will not like it if they killed Takhisis.
That old fart Paladine's nemesis,
I will not will not with a kender.
I might consider it on a bender.
The Bestsellers list? Well that means zip!
Those sheep they call fans aren't hip.

Frump Reads War of Souls

Frump: Say!
I like the War of Souls, I do!
I like it Sam-I-Know it's true!
And I dig all four types of magic.
I dig the heroes both courageous and tragic.
They did not kill my Fifth Age today
I think that I'm a fan who'll stay!
I would read it here or there.
I would read it ANYWHERE!

I do so like the War of Souls.
Thank you, thank you Sam-I-Know.
