This sad tale dates

far back in time;

to a small island,

covered in brine.

The people were wary

of anyone new;

t'was for good reason,

and ol' Samey-yu.

The times were perilous

and darkest for were;

times of no trust which,

no one dare.

There was a dark evil in

yon forests of nigh;

an evil so hidden,

t'was thought a lie.

No spirit abested

no man to live;

we all their slaves,

if ventured in.

Go on! Be lost!

The warning lies;

t'is up to you

who dare defy.

We'll not come looking

for any poor who

chance to venture yon

forest of Samey-yu.
