Some folk are brave and more are not
To ask the good folk for what they seek
Those spirit folk we called the Sidhe
Of whom we refuse to directly speak.
The taboo still exists in theses modern times
Among those who are close to the land
Live the air, and the earth, and the rain
In a way city folk cant understand.

Some ask from a need – but there is a price
It may be worse than the ailment of you complain
You wont know the price till the favour you saught
Forever in their debt may remain.
Tricksters, traitors, work for themselves
If you have much sense or worth
Bear lifes load on your shoulders as is meant to be borne
Ask not help from the Fairy Fort!
