Duchess


Original:

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat don’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark.
Papa’s gonna buy you and horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
Well, you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.


Duchess:

Hey, stay still, don’t move a muscle,
Duchess will care for you darling

And if there’s ever something you may need
Duchess will see to it with lightning speed

And if you are ready to try some gruel
Duchess will feed you till you’re full

And if your stomach decides to turn over
Duchess will wait until your fever lowers

And if your temperature decides to hover
Duchess will kill it with some extra covers

And if some bones broke from a collapse
Duchess will set you straight in a cast

And when it’s time for the cast to leave
Duchess will trade you out for a sling

And if it’s only your heart that hurts now
Well the best homesickness cure is to return to town

Author’s Note:

Sweet little 11 years of age Duchess... She is as sweet as can be, but she’s made of steel when someone gets sick or injured. Never takes no as an answer and makes sure to help whoever it is back to health. As Alzie’s little sister, she’s more protected than others. Who wouldn’t want to monopolize a healer and sell her abilities at steep prices or not let anyone get help again? Ok, now tell me who would go up against 3 army commanders to get to said healer when they could have you squashed in seconds? Thought not 😂
