WHILE YOU CAN

Gloat then; while you can; for your time is short,
For all that you fought for will be gone.
All that you pillaged and what you bought;
For out of your own ashes your masters come.
They will have learned from you; now you from them,
Must learn as slaves do, the good virtues of time,
Patience and purpose waiting for when,
Your sun rises again; upon you to shine.
As you have been, so will you become;
As you have suffered so you shall excel!
Then you will reap ruin for all that you’ve done,
For the Creator has planned this system well.
Gloat then; for soon you will cry;
But the seed of your ambition will not die.
