Have you heard the good rumour?
No, you have not, though I’d say
you see nothing good
in that country of yours.
Those in power there prefer this state,
they could let their rage run wild
and bring those that bite back
into their bubble of blood.
Many of your fellow citizens
feel the fear that follows them
anywhere they ascend,
but what can they do?
I shall tell you the good rumour –
you can better them, if you best them.
