to the tune of "New Moon on Monday"

Who's got the baby? There may be gravy
For a mom with a newborn child.
You got Accepted taking census
On the slopes where the Dragon died.

I've seen them before, but that was in their future:
Maybe there's a wheel of time.
I didn't think I'd see them together
When they weren't yet Aes Sedai.

Send me a bleak Foretelling
Of a babe long prophesied.
Last time the Dragon—
I write my Jordan ravings for the

New Spring: The Novel,
And the Aiel dance spears at night.
I'll praise the prequel:
He's remembered how to write!

Breaking away from Moiraine Demodred,
A shawl for Moiraine Sedai,
And every day Siuan keeps finding
Clues from the ears and eyes.

Save her from Sun succession;
Bond a Warder in the Blight—
Next time the Dragon!
I write my Jordan ravings for the

New Spring: The Novel,
And the Aiel dance spears at night.
I'll praise the prequel:
He's remembered how to write!


If you're ploughing through the series, you can meaningfully read the prequel anytime after book 1, and before book 11. Personally I would recommend right after book 5.

Conveniently, this is also the point at which I recommend people start skipping. By all means begin book 6, but be aware that the writing only gets worse for five books. The moment your interest flags, put down the current volume and skip to Knife of Dreams.
