How it performs
But your way was suspicious
To target your victim
With the collaboration of scoundrels
You were the deadly fool
And mistaken
To execute the tactics
On the person who enjoys
The light of the Divine power
Who has its kingdom
And own world of truth
Peace and love
For all the humans on earth.
