"You've got sword in your hand,

you have taken the black.

But once you've said your vows

you can never go back.

You're on your own. And you know what you know.

But unfortunately you know NOTHING Jon Snow."

...checks in with Arya...

Alex Cohen

"Out there things can happen

and frequently do,

to kids all alone in the world

just like you.

And then things start to happen,

keep chanting your list.

Cross off name after name

and you'll surely persist."

It recounts Blackwater...

Alex Cohen

"You won't lag behind, what you may lack in height

you make up for in wit, you can win every fight!

When you sit as the Hand, you won't yield to no threats!

Wherever you go, you always pay your debts!"

...and Baelor.

Alex Cohen

"Except when you don't

Because, sometimes you won't.

I'm sorry to say so

but sadly it's true.

Blood spilling

and killing

can happen to you.

You can get all hung up

in that cruel game of thrones.

You will win or will die

and be no more than bones."

At some points it gets pretty dark.

Alex Cohen

"You might fall deep in love,

Then he'll run off to war

down long wiggled roads with an army and more

and grind on for miles all covered in gore

headed, I fear, towards a place you abhor.

The Dying Place..."

Alex Cohen

"...for people just dying.

Dying from forbidden lust

or a broken past, an arrow thrust

or the men at war, or to make things just

or a poisoned drink, or misplaced trust

or simply dying because they must,

or through an act of much disgust.

Everyone is just dying.

Dying to defend their name

or dying as part of the game

or dying to remove a claim

or dying, perhaps, for a father's scheme

or a venomous kiss, or without a scream

or a raging boar, or a midnight shit

or a golden crown, or a bit of wit.

Everyone is just dying."

But it still maintains Dr. Seuss's uplifting message despite the despair of the Game of Thrones story thus far.

Alex Cohen

"No!

That's not for you!

Somehow you'll escape all that dying and lying.

You'll leave those dark dungeons,

or shame yourself trying."

Alex Cohen

"So...

be your name Jon Snow or Arya or Bran,

Tyrion or Dany Targaryen

You've come to Great Places!

Today is your day!

The Game of Thrones is waiting

So...go on and play!"
