THE LADIES IN SOSARIA


Now the deadly widow spider eats the mate that doesn't flee
As does the preying mantis if she's courted carelessly
Don't be fooled by fragile beauty, for thereby hangs my tale:
That the ladies in Sosaria are deadly as the male!

Now, you'll see a lovely lady with clothes of black and red
Court her gingerly and carefully, or else you'll wind up dead!
Don't muck about with KdoLS, you're better off in jail!
For the ladies in Sosaria are deadly as the male!

See that sweet and fragile lady, see that lissome little miss
Treads the dance with grace and beauty, drops a curtsey, trades a kiss...
And she also puts on armor, lays about with shield and flail!
For the ladies in Sosaria are deadly as the male!

There are sharp and shining long swords, there are battle axes bright,
There are bodice-knives and hatpins, there is poison in the night
But their tongue's their sharpest weapon, over that you can't prevail
For the ladies in Sosaria are more deadly than the male!
