Dangerous days lie ahead, O friends
In this city of magic and smiles
I see many ways your paths may end
But still, tarry here for awhile

Among you there is a child of gold
Beloved of one who does stalk
You’re but a key to be controlled
For a treasure untold to unlock

Another will find that what they have lost
Is really still theirs to find
But then they must ask, is it worth the cost
When the truth will lay bare their mind

The last will have truth knocked out from below
Like a hangman removing a stool
They must then decide if the reality they know
Is worth bearing a past that is cruel

A welcome I sound to the Witch Queen’s town
To all of you entering here
I hope that you all find here fame and renown
And lose nothing you hold too dear
