Sonnet 0

In fair Zone 0 we begin our tale

With Purifier and his Puppeteer

Encouraged by a cat who looked quite frail

The Purifier said, “The end is near.”

He journeyed far and wide to all the Zones

A brave, redeeming knight with bat in hand

He slayed the demons, scattering their bones

The pale, masked vendor said “It’s all as planned.”

The warrior’s quest soon came to an end

Before the Queen he came after a time

His head did bow, and his proud knee did bend

The Purifier answered for his crimes

He who conquers self doth conquer twice

Slaughter recklessly, dear knight, and pay the price
