From “The Selling of Suzee Delight”

By Holly Lisle

Shower song… figured out the tune and a handful of the words while I was standing in the shower, and where it will fit in the story while I was doing my first five sets of squats.

Adding it as a story note here so I don’t lose it.


The Blood runs north and the Fire runs south
And the ships that sail to the rivers’ mouth
Carry the dead who have gone before
To the Lady of Justice and the God of War

And those who sail these rivers two
Were brave and fair and very few
And carry a grace we never knew
And the white ships sail them home


ACAPELLO (just so I don’t forget the tune when I actually have time to finish writing this)
