The world is burning around me.
This is not my finest hour.
I have no prayer of winning,
but that doesn’t mean I won’t try.
If my sword should fail,
I still have my teeth.
If my teeth break,
let it be in your throat.
I may not win,
but then again, neither might you.
Song Choice: As this was part of the inspiration for the Toad's Challenge, Carmina Burana
