COPLA VEINTE: This Bad Guy World


Expose the wiles of the Bad Guy
He’ll stoop low and use stratagem
And if he fails

He’ll cry foul play and devise ploy
Hold himself out as the rare gem
The World defiles

If you succeed in nailing him:
He’ll say pro patria mori
Or some such god

If you then let him play victim
You’ll fall right into his hands free:
Like him be sod

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
