Melane


Original:

A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it

I dropped it, I dropped it
Yes, on the way I dropped it
A little girlie picked it up
And took it to the market

She was truckin’ on down the avenue
Without a single thing to do
She was peck, peck, peckin’ all around
When she spied it on the ground

A-tisket a-tasket
She took my yellow basket
And if she doesn’t bring it back
I think that I shall die

A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it

I dropped it, I dropped it
Yes, on the way I dropped it
A little girlie picked it up
And took it to the market

(Was it red?) No, no, no, no
(Was it brown?) No, no, no, no
(Was it blue?) No, no, no, no
Just a little yellow basket


Melane’s:
Oh blast it, Oh blast it

My handmade spear and dagger

I just had to go and forget to take it

And on that day I lost it

I lost it, I lost it

Yes, on that day I lost it

A certain birdie snatched it up

And sold it on the black market

He was sneaking all around the brush

Quieter than a mouse saying “Hush”

He was laughing, tiptoeing, wandering around

When he found it on the ground

Oh blast it, Oh blast it

He took my spear and dagger

And if he doesn’t buy it back

I think that I shall snap

Oh blast it, Oh blast it

My handmade spear and dagger

I just had to go and forget to take it

And on that day I lost it

I lost it, I lost it

Yes, on that day I lost it

A certain birdie snatched it up

And sold it on the black market

(Was it brand name, fresh off it’s frame?) No, no and no

(Was it tipped with silver or gold?) No, no and no

(Was it at least an ancient heirloom?) No, no and no

Just a Zypher scythe bound with blood and vows

Author’s Note:

Melane is 8 years of age and is quite sly. Having been on her own for the past few years before Z takes her in, she has picked up certain skills to keep surviving. She may be a little absent minded sometimes, since she has finally found a safe place where she no longer has to be on guard 24/7, but she has a good head on her shoulders!
