All Empires Must Fall

 

            A wealthy kingdom fights no war.

            The princess is inside her room;

            The king is dead there on the floor.

            No one could have foretold the doom

            They have gathered, armed in the square

            Shouting for justice, for freedom

            She sees her mistakes, all now bare

            Who ruined this happy kingdom?

            They’ve come for her, they want blood.

            She cannot run or hide for long

            Instead she waits, alone she stood

            They do not wait to siege, too strong.

                        A fallen kingdom lost the war

                        A princess makes mistake no more.
