I never turned anyone into a pig.
Some people are pigs; I make them
Look like pigs.
I'm sick of your world
That lets the outside disguise the inside.
Your men weren't bad men;
Did that to them.
Under the care of
Me and my ladies, they
Sweetened right up.
Then I reversed the spell, showing you my goodness
As well as my power.
We could be happy here,
As men and women are
When their needs are simple.
In the same breath,
I foresaw your departure,
Your men with my help braving
The crying and pounding sea.
A few tears upset me? My friend,
Every sorceress is
A pragmatist at heart; nobody sees essence who can't
If I wanted only to hold you
I could hold you prisoner.
