To all I see, I bid a gracious hello.
I am a magician by trade, and my name is Prospero.
I was once Duke of Milan twelve years ago.
However, I was deposed by my treacherous brother Antonio.
With my daughter Miranda, on this island I now dwell.
Also, there is a spirit who goes by the name of Ariel.
I can also mention a creature half beast, half man.
This incorrigible soul goes by the name of Caliban.
I understand Antonio is aboard a ship at sea.
Some other adversaries keep him company.
Let me sink their ship in a storm, and have them come to me.
based on the play "The Tempest" by William Shakespeare
