"Source"erer's Apprentice

Just because neither Michial or I took the time to read Der Zauberlehrling by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe doesn't mean that you shouldn't read it. 

You can also read the Sorcerer's source - an ancient work called Philopseudes by Lucian of Samosata.  Who knows, it might inspire you to write a fourteen stanza ballad of your own.
