Flying Lemming

Rookie - 10 Points (England)

Our Greatest Weapon


The evil dictator prepared for the day
Against all weapons that might come his way
By pulling on his bullet proof vest
With extra armour across his chest
Including the mesh stab proof lining
With his titanium helmet shining
Climbed in his flameproof air tight jacket
With lead set panels inserted to back it
Covered with a lead lined coat
And padding with steel wrapped round his throat
Adrenaline pills to keep poison at bay
A mask so gas won’t get in his way
He stepped out to the crowd and soon he felt halfed
He had no defence against the people who laughed

    We should all laugh at politicians when they want to start a war...
    Maybe that way we would all get to live a long and happy life...
