Tinker's Song

Tinker's Song - a filk song I created for the Tinkers in my Tinker series.


Tinker's Song by Stephen B. Pearl

Based on the Tinker series of novels, post-apocalyptic, science fiction, environmental, medical and political thrillers.

A filk I wrote based on the profession that my novel Tinker's Plague centers around.

     Chorus

     Tinkers can, oh tinkers can.

     Wandering the roads.

     A lethal shot.

     A healing hand.

     An Engineer that roams.


     Verses

     Light the way, the tinkers can, in a dark-some land.

     Restore us to, our squandered past, yes the tinkers can.

     Chorus

     With sun and wind and wave you stand, first dawn in a dark night.

     Healer to our wounded Earth, our mother set to rights.

     Chorus

     First glimmer of fair, precious hope, in a land trapped in despair.

     Clean waters from the poisoned streams, bring the tinkers fair.

     Chorus

     Face the horrors of yester-year, and wrestle them to ground.

     Fearless 'gainst the toxic filth, our ancestors did found.

     Chorus

     From the foulness of the collapse, our forefathers did bring

     The tinkers like a shaft of light, do a new age bring.

     Chorus

     Learned in so many things, they walk a shattered land.

     Save the best of everything, and healing bring to man.

     Chorus

     And so mankind shall phoenix like, riseth from the flame.

     And tinkers shall the first spark be, our future for to claim.

     Chorus


Tinker's Seed by Stephen B. Pearl

Based on the Tinker series of novels, post-apocalyptic, science fiction, environmental, medical and political thrillers.

A teaching rhyme from the novel Tinker's Plague.

     Tinker seed is clean seed.

     In poisoned land now take thee heed.

     Father to many, parent to none.

     Heed this wisdom, tinker run.

     Let not your heart to child go.

     For family ties are traveller's foe.
