Default The World


What else's going wrong in the world today?
Villages are raped, ransacked, oppressed,
The laws were firstly constructed—
Propositions some’ve thought to thwart.
Did you hear that without your help
All else will invariably go to ruin?
Will you watch some drastic measure
Crash the communities in your arena?
What could you do? What could be done?
As if you know the keys to life…
Within sight of these fingers,
And because of them, the real players—
They should be rerouted to another plane.
What could we do? What could I do?

We could buy tickets for them on a United flight.

The Huns are at the gates again, with fire in hand
ten thousand men... approach our shining city.

Be brave my lads and string your bows, up on the wall
do climb and stand with bright chapeaus.

Fear is but the mewling of discontented masses, brush it off
and clear your head, for no noble sons of this empire
have ever died in bed.

Thank you. Ms. Bot does, on occasion, inspire even I.
