The Ballad of Jan and April

Jan's requested points ballad - the first installment

Part 1

Once upon a time, long ago
the World was not a Web,
and Cities were lifetimes apart
if the Tides did not ebb.

In these days, now far gone, our two
could not have reached across
that Great Divide and found a Tale
of friendship won at cost.

In a wet and soggy city,
April lives by the Sea.
A couple continents between
her home and Jan’s old lea.

From Jan’s home in river town Ghent
to far forested shores
of rainy Vancouver took
boats weeks with wind and oars.

Now comes the time of Techno Witch,
Witchingham, U.S.A.
She builds a web to catch us all
and we just think it’s play.

This witchy web, it goes world wide,
across the bounding seas,
connecting those once far off shores
and making travel free.

Our fair Jan and our fair April
into this web they stroll.
From far afield to one Web Guide
both our heroines roll.

Our Jan, she makes herself a name
dispensing wise advice
on where to read, and what is good
and how to just ‘play nice.’

The Witch, she hears these friendly rules
and does them not approve.
She sends her spiders to track Jan,
along the web they move.

In the Web Guide lunchroom sits Jan,
dispensing helpful hints.
Newbie April hears sage advice
but sees not spiders’ glint.

A huddling mass of arachnids
descends upon the pair.
Their silken strands entwine our girls,
tea, and digital chairs.

I decided to take it as a compliment, it would help keep me from beating Antonius where he stood.
