Jacob Wells commands the dark
Below the paths of Central Park
He keeps his community in line -
Ne'er was there a patriarch so fine!

Paracelsus, on the other hand
Tried to uproot this good man,
And all good things, he wanted spoiled;
But thankfully, his plans were foiled!

John "Paracelsus" Pater
Would return for touble later.
But to his tricks, lies and masks
Vincent took his claws to task.

Kindra     2/9/2010 8:38:10 PM
Jacob Wells
Many stories he tells
About a special young boy
That brought the world Below joy.

Quin     2/9/2010 5:46:24 PM
Dr. Jacob Wells
Beneath the city he dwells.
To found with unity
Our own tunnel community!

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 5:37:25 PM
John Pater, or "Paracelsus"
Was a fiend, or so they tell us
He ruled the "lost ones" as his minions
But over him death claimed dominion.

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 5:26:34 PM
Jacob Wells, friend and doctor
Persecuted like John Proctor
Stood against those "witch hunt" fools
Now leads a world with better rules

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 12:23:32 PM
Jacob Wells
His voice lilting like bells
To those who are lost
Speaks of Shakespeare and Frost.

Brooke Summerlin     2/9/2010 3:51:25 PM
Our Father, Jacob Wells
Is known for the stories he tells
But when playing chess, I’m afraid
His skill is decayed.

Tim Rooch     2/9/2010 1:10:39 PM
John "Paracelsus" Pater
Wanted now, instead of later
Pushed Vincent to a boiling head
Got his wish, now he's dead

Edith     2/9/2010 1:10:30 PM
Jacob Wells
Jacob Wells, also known as Father,
Was Vincents Father most of all.
When he thought of his son,
He was protective all and all.

Edith     2/9/2010 1:09:44 PM
Paracelsus was a mean old man,
A mean old man was he.
He thought he could get the tunnels,
And make them a slave as can be.

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 12:23:32 PM
Jacob Wells
His voice lilting like bells
To those who are lost
Speaks of Shakespeare and Frost.

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 12:23:17 PM
John Paracelsus Pater
Was a self-confessed hater
He embodied great evil
And caused lots of upheaval.

Michelle K.     2/9/2010 12:23:09 PM
John Paracelsus Pater
No villain was greater
But now he's down under
His chest torn asunder.

JoAnn     2/9/2010 10:23:55 AM
Jacob Wells
Father "tells."
Vincent accepts.
Devin rejects.

JoAnn     2/9/2010 10:22:15 AM
John "Paracelsus" Pater:
Brilliant once, crazy later!
The name of "Father" wasn't enough?
You just HAD to call Father's bluff.

Linda S     2/9/2010 10:02:28 AM
John Pater, “Paracelsus”,
You were not always this way, Father tells us.
What happened that made you so evil?
Did you make a pact with the Devil?

Bright one     2/9/2010 9:22:39 AM
Jacob Wells
so the story tells
is father to all
big and small

Laura D.     2/9/2010 8:36:03 AM
Poor "Father" Dr. Jacob Wells,
Too much bitterness within him dwells.
He turns away from the world Above,
And denies himself a chance for love.

Vee     2/9/2010 7:20:22 AM
John Paracelsus Pater,
Vincent asked later,
Was I born by his wife?
Did he engineer my very life?
No, Vincent, my Love. Only lies he'd proclaim.
He's a madman, my Love. Quite simply insane.

Jo     2/9/2010 7:32:34 AM
John “Paracelsus” Pater
Was a mean old woman hater.
He lusted only for gold.
His heart was stone, and oh, so cold.

Jo     2/9/2010 7:19:08 AM
Always the worrier is Jacob Wells
“Be careful, Vincent, be careful,” he tells
“I’ll be alright,” Vincent says to his Father
Who until he met Catherine, he loved like no other

Laura     2/9/2010 4:12:42 AM
Doctor Jacob "Father" Wells
At meddling he always excels
We wish you'd leave Vincent alone
Or we'll beat like we were Stallone!

becca b     2/9/2010 4:15:46 AM
John "Paracelsus" Pater,
Mean as an alligator!
When it comes to chaos and mayhem,
From off his evil path you won't sway him.

daria     2/9/2010 2:18:06 AM
at chittendon his claim of research
left many a scientist hanging in the lurch.
though jacob told them all the truth
they ruined him and stole his youth.

daria     2/9/2010 2:14:04 AM
paracelsus is thought of as evil
dwelling deep in the tunnels, a weevil.
modern times it seems had changed him
by that green ghoulish light he's grown grim.
