Do you remember those days, 
 so dear now they've gone, 
 when kin were like a family 
 and not so withdrawn? 
 And we didn't all agree, 
 we didn't all get along, 
 we squabbled, we fought, 
 but we kept going strong. 

There were glades of fae and satyrs, 
 who'd beckon you come in, 
 pixies who growled, while 
 dragons smiled and grinned. 
 What's changed over time, 
 and what's been the cost? 
 What have we gained, 
 and what have we lost? 

Lists weren't abandoned, 
 or deleted outright. 
 Folks didn't stop talking 
 over one little fight. 
 New kin weren't dissected, 
 like lab specimens, 
 to see if they're trolling or 
 if they're genuine. 

There were glades of fae and satyrs, 
 who'd beckon you come in, 
 pixies who growled, while 
 dragons smiled and grinned. 
 What's changed over time, 
 and what's been the cost? 
 What have we gained, 
 and what have we lost? 

Where are the satyrs, 
 space-elves and sidhe? 
 Brrrnn, multiples, 
 hosts and Tuatha DD? 
 And the cloak-winged dragons 
 who danced on the wind? 
 Do you think we'll 
 ever see them again? 

There were glades of fae and satyrs, 
 who'd beckon you come in, 
 pixies who growled, while 
 dragons smiled and grinned. 
 What's changed over time, 
 and what's been the cost? 
 What have we gained, 
 and what have we lost?
