I can fit thirteen
Witches on the checkerboard;
That must be the most.
Witch of Joy.
If all of the witches are black,
I'd say that we're on the wrong track;
You can fit many more,
I would say sixty-four!
(Witches on the same side can't attack.)
Thirteen is, um, what I was looking for.
MIMULUS, that's a good guess, but I think
It really goes against the Sphinx's Sixth.
I trust with loyal faith, so I hate tricks
That make you think a puzzle's something else.
Cool solving, EDOGAWA! And I swear
I'll be the Witch of Promises someday.
SHIN, the Opal Apprentice, Witch of Promises
Witch of Secrets (aside, to audience)
My spell has chained them all with misdirection;
The riddles that they've known become their fetters.
Their sights set low, the truth escapes detection --
They cannot see outside the cage of letters!
