Hm. Lightning Rod? Check.
Surge Protector? Check.
Sure, it's a clear day, but you can't be too careful.

Here, for your approval, or lack thereof, is a filk dedicated to Rincewind...

"Pawn of Lady Luck"
Lyrics by Morgan Lewis
TUNE: "Heart of Rock and Roll" by Huey Lewis (no relation)

Morpork, Morpork, is worse than what they say,
But no place would he rather see,
Where else can you a buy a sausage-inna-bun,
For just a quarter or three?
When they say there's danger, ooh, that urban danger,
He will avoid it by a mile,
But it's still that same old weak-kneed terror,
That really, really sends him flyin'

CHORUS
They say the pawn of Lady Luck is still fleein',
Moving nigh so fast you can't see him,
Now the Wizzard's always scared and screamin',
And the pawn of Lady Luck, the pawn of Lady Luck is still fleein'.

Cohen, Mr. Teach, and the Silver Horde,
Are people everyone should meet,
Rebel fights, and the Agatean girls,
All press his sanity,
When they say there's danger, that hard luck danger,
Rincewind will dodge it in a flash,
But it's still that same old weak-kneed terror,
That really, really bites him in the ...

CHORUS

Hades, Death's Domain, and the Tezumen land,
Wyrmberg and Unseen U.,
Four-Ecks, Rimfall, alternate dimensions,
The Hublands, Bes Pelargic, too,
Everywhere there's danger, real live danger,
Lands with a million wilds,
But it's still that same old spine-chilling terror,
That really, really sends him flyin'

CHORUS

And screamin'...
Rincewind...pawn of Lady Luck...
