Thirty-four would like to save the world,
Having love for life and faith in will.
In front of her is evil, raw and rending,
Revolving in a retrograde unending,
Tough, selfish lust and greed ascendant still,
Yet spiraling down towards hell in freedom furled.

For those in fetal amniosis curled,
One can only be a bard unbending,
Unveiling the truth with patient skill,
Rallying to spare what needs defending.
