Since the beginning of time there have been monsters,
those who rise to power riding their terrors.
As they commit greater atrocities,
they will gain more cities.
Soon they have whole countries under their iron hand,
and the world seems at an end.
Just as people are about to lose all hope,
someone stands up to help them cope.
They lead the fight,
against the fright.
Then monster sees the commander,
and is determined to be the obliterator.
Then the monster begins to go down,
and it struggles not to drown.
When the monster knows its conquered,
it runs and hides like a coward.
Then when order is restored,
the commander retires on its own accord.
Thus is the nature of nature.
