1 While the cMoors were out slaughtering everybody in the name of Allah,
2 Some of the other eastern barbarians may have been having fun too,
3 But nobody really remembers much about it,
4 Because all the books written by the eastern barbarians are much too long to read,
5 And besides, it doesn't really matter what happened,
6 Since nothing really changed anyway,
