Call me a humble Knight
who'd dismantle all corruption
watching over you even at night
as our present dark moments
transform through baptism
to what we once enjoyed: The Light!
Shielding you in my structured protoplasm
as I take you all to new heights.
Definitely, I expect criticism
but they should guide our flight.
As we come together to function
like one Organism.
Please listen to me and sit tight.
I'm not here to steal your minds
as in alcoholism
not to cause a campaign fight
cos they may break the Country's nerves
condemning it to a state of National Autism
Your burdens, I'll carry with all my might
and doing otherwise?
I consider Cannibalism.
