CHAPTER 421 Yes, my gift is a asimple one,
2 Simply expressed.
3 bIt is time to wash our hands of everything,
4 And quit pretending that it will ever get fixed,
5 cAnd just stop thinking about it altogether,
6 dAnd do whatever we want to do,
7 eWhenever we want to do it,
8 fNo matter who gets hurt,
9 gAs long as it isn't us.
10 Now, isn't that what you've all been waiting to hear someone say,
