    Shalah Shaloom

    They sheathed their swords up to the hilts
    Loyal to the queen they'd been, erstwhilst
    Before her madness in quest of the moon
    The bridge they'd begun ceased too soon

    They followed the maps made by explorers
    With notes added by sundry adventurers
    And more scribbles and doodles than could
    Be expected to make sense of, they should

    Their number now in the tens of thousands
    Conquered lands across the seas and sands
    But at sunset low did they learn the truth
    Their quest halted by a mountain forsooth!

    Shalah Shaloom, that mythological city
    Made the generals exeptionally ****ty
    By being nowhere near the ground
    But upon the peaks was it to be found

    Way up there in the cold snowy clouds
    Causing much head scratching doubts
    The maps didn't depict a steep mountain
    Merely a town, in the centre a fountain

    A simple farmer raking the soil
    Suddenly disturbed from focused toil
    Was asked about the lofty dilemma
    Thought a little, arrived at similar

    'You'll be frozen by the time you get there'
    'If you make it at all, if you still care'
    'Of course you will, because that is your jobs'
    'But if impossible you'd be off your knobs...'

    At that as one they deigned to disband
    All to return to their respective land
    And as he watch the armies depart
    The farmer could not help but fart

    A fart of happiness, a fart of glee
    A fart of triumph, a fart of victory
    For he had fooled them, they who dared
    Far had they come, and well had they'd fared

    But they had not counted on a trick
    Of a farty old man who gave them the flick
    By simply saying it was atop, not behind
    If taken the road Shalah Shaloom they could find

    But they're gone, and it's over, and that's it
    As somple as tightening the nut with a ratchet
    That fell the blade which the Queen's head lopped
    Now there's a King who has no mind to be chopped
