sally the serf

sally the serf says
the kingdom’s gone mad
the lords are all crazy
the kings are all bad

sally the serf says
the hordes at the gate
can still be held back
but not if we wait

sally the serf says
we need to be fair
be decent, be kind
and show that we care

so sally the serf
she’s formed a commission
to study what’s wrong
and take a position

sally the serf says
we might need a rule
one tougher on nobles
who act harsh or cruel

but sally, oh, sally
what noble will pass
an act to police
its own ruling class?

perhaps, my dear sally
the answer instead
lies in the wisdom
of what you first said

sally, so decent
if you are just you
perhaps some will learn
to do as you do

and sally, if not
don’t worry at all
for when the hordes come
the nobles will fall
