Mutiny Against Stupidity
The world is like a sea
The countries are mobile ships
When a great plague washes over
Not from scruby, but from corona.
The colonial ships take extreme measures
To keep their colonies safe and secure
By staying indoors to keep the disease out
Wear the bandana masks to protect from it
Keep six feet apart unless ye be six feet under water
Only go out to get what supplies was needed.
Yet there are rebels that refuse to follow
The strict rules that Captains issued
So they take their own mobile tiny ships
Out to sea into foreign waters
Where the rules don't apply.
They protest and party
They wear no masks
They conga in a line
Six inches close together
As they konga to the music.
These rebel pirates have restraint
THey know not of the consequences
THat were to follow with their recklessness
Which worries the Larger Country Ships.
But! All hope is not lost
For these dear lost souls
Out in the great blue sea
Flies colony ships of hope
Six feet apart their ships be!
That bear the jolly roger of true rebellion!
These true rebels are rebelling
Against the Pirates of Dumb
Those who would break order
Because they want to raid islands
To steal gold and toilet paper!
These true rebels of justice
Come from far and wide
To stand up to these heartless fools
Who would disgrace the order!
Their justice swift and true
Striking them with blades of truth
To knock some sense into them
Cannon fire of sanity
Bursts their ships of insanity!
For these heroes who are combating
The dumb pirates that broke away
From their home ships that tried to protect them
From the true terror that would take them
To Davey Jone's Locker!
While many were quaratined safely
The Captains of Stupidity of their ships
With their crew fell ill to the virus
And never awakened to the sound of gold clinking
THeir bodies thrown to the sea
Where Davey Jones takes them to be sealed in his locker.
The Heroes of Justice and Truth
Returned the rebels back
To their loved ones
For they learned their lesson
Took the order seriously.
As time passed on
The virus vanished
When a vaccine was found
By the smartest of pirates
That saved the lives of millions.
The country ships returned back to exploring the world
Having adventures, chasing their dreams
But most of all the greatest treasure
That they could ever ask for
Was being free once again.
All thanks to the heroes
Who stood up against the dummies
Whose actions nearly took millions
But the true rebels were those
Who rose the flag
To mutiny against stupidity.
