Some people just want to watch the world burn...

Gideon

~Bridget Kennedy

Everybody wants to rule the world
Not
Me!
I don't think that crown and kingdoms make the world
Go 
Round
Every silly little monarch who has tried
And 
Failed
Gets to watch me play with all their toys
And burn
Them
Down
I don't hunger much for power, that's for
Small-
-er
Men
I get bored so quick with privilege, I don't
Need
A
Name
I just want a box of matches and a
Tall
Regime
And the chance to watch a dynasty
Go up
In
Flames
