Defeated

 

Do you see the flag?

I’m holding it high;

It’s fluttering out

Right there in the sky.

This flag, it is white,

One of defeat,

You’ve won the war,

My ruin’s complete.

I’ve laid down my weapons

My hands clearly open

But will you accept

This losers token.

I don’t want to struggle,

I don’t want to fight

Capitulating

To your delight.

You are the victor,

I’ve just gone and quit;

You wanted to beat me --

Well, this is it!
