On his first day at school
Little Purple did meet with so many of his teachers
So big and so small
That he grew confused and just wandered about

Till one kindly old soul did say
“There, there Little Purple let me sort out what’s going about”
And before he knew it his first day was at an end

He looked at his timetable and his eyes nearly popped out
So many classes and lectures to attend
His father did say “that it seems difficult at first
But before long your days will be bouncing along”.

Little purple did study his timetable again and again
And it did boggle his mind
That there were so many letters
He had to attend.

A: is for Altitude must be obeyed, or into others you might fly – See E
B: is for Breath, management there of – See F
C: is for Co-ordinating – mapping and such – See J
D: is for Defence – See S
E: is for Elementary Flying School – Little Purple has passed

Well what did you think of the letters so far that Little Purple has to attend! Well here is the rest of his timetable.
How do you think you would go studying all these…..

F: is for Fire and Flame – See B
G: is for Goods and Chattels, how to acquire said same
H: is for Hazards, Humans and Haulage (Little Purple is excused the last)
I: is for Invisibility when humans are about – See H
J: is for Jumping between places far and near – See C
K: is for Knowledge, history and such – See P
L: is for Literature, a broad mind to reveal
M: is for Magick – See D, H & S
N: is for Nursing, the care and healing of self
O: is for Other, i.e. Creatures & Worlds – See R
P: is for Policing and Protocol, learning the rules and regs – See K & X
Q: is for Quenching, said fire and flame – See F
R: is for Royalty, Kings & Queens – See O
S: is for Spells, casting about – See D, H, I & M
T: is for The 3 R’s – Reading, Riting & Rithmetic – See everything else
U: is for Unusual – just about everything there
V: is for Velocity, speed is its other name – See A, D, E, F, H, I, J & W
W: is for Weapons, for defence and attack – See D
X: is for X, don’t go there – See P

I wonder how long it will take Little Purple to get from A to Z. It should be quite interesting to see!
