WOW ROY LAC
Opting to depart the ruins of the White Witch,
Milos and Nash walked for days, in search of civilization:
Through the windswept deserts of Tolengo,
On to the swamp-lake Tokolot,
Which they crossed in a make-shift raft nicknamed Penny Candy;
Upon traversing the shadowy Sherman Forest,
They glimpsed the legendary cliffs of Crick,
Before reaching a peaceful meadow,
Which was ornamented with a single tree:
A decrepit figure was discovered clinging to its lowest branches,
A feathered monster whose black eyes mourned with a pronounced sorrow,
"Who are you?" Nash asked.
In response, the creature croaked,
"Wow roy lac."
