BLUE SUN ROOM FILK
Found, after her death, in Nandi's desk at the Heart of Gold.
CATEGORY: FILK TIMES READ: 2053 RATING: 9 SERIES: FIREFLY
Companions are trained from childhood, in their Mother House they are taught
All the skills of their honored trade, for which they are greatly sought
They learn these skills from masters, the greatest of all their kind
How to give pleasure to the flesh, and diversion to the mind
The way to use the downcast glance, and the turn of the head, just so
The way to snare a Client’s heart…and the way to let it go
The way to make a contract and ensure the proper fee
For Companions’ time and company cannot be had for free
And how to tell what a man will want, or what a woman desires
And how to best direct each one to the height of passion’s fires
Or how to sometimes just sit and talk, and pass the time in peace
For often pleasant company is better than passion’s release
When they have learned all they can learn, some will stay at home
And work within the Mother House. Others choose to roam
They travel on the space lanes, finding Client’s where they may
There or here for a day or a year, and then they fly away
To many a distant planet, under many a distant sun
Giving their love to many, but being in love with none
For the strongest rule of the Mother House, the one that is graven is stone
Is the rule that a working Companion must travel the ‘verse alone
And this rule is a wise rule as the ones who have broken it know
For being in love while you sell your love is the surest path to woe
As you must either quit the life you worked so hard to gain
Or else condemn the one you love to a life of jealous pain
All Companions have heard these tales; tales of sadness and sorrow
They know that if they fall in love, their dreams could end tomorrow
Often in their lonely hours they think of what they’d lose
And ponder: Of their chosen life or their love…which would they choose?
