So may a tiny, clever enemy
Wield more power than the greatest states.
Inventive, mutant, merciless murderers,
Now they plot as the world prepares and waits,
Each moment shadowed by catastrophe.

For us, the only road to victory
Lies through the valley of the sufferers,
Unified in love till death abates.
