The number is three
as everyone can see.
The people all vote for me
and I am the only one free.
If it means you listen to my plea,
then follow us all old and young to sea.
There we will drown and all pretenders will flee,
For this is the source of my immortality.
This time I added a syllable for every line. I only could reach twelve and keep it sensible.
Let me know what you think.
