You tread those lonely roads with pride
not unlike the death adder for it is very proud.
Stand clear of the adders fork, or you'll be cut in stride.
Tread on good monsieur, but I warn ye to watch the ground.

Be warned, with fierce eyes staring at you like an eagle
the king will stare you down, completely royal and regal
Believe me not, and you'll see the truth before the end.
And like the Indians, I hope you'll learn how to bend.

Moving on you'll see the king of Africa with eyes--
black as coal, looking upon you with anxiety.
Move an inch, and you will find you will get a surprise.
He will open his pit-less black mouth with piety.

Hopefully, you headed my warning, and pray you will.
However, the white king is yet to come, and he shall
come with impunity, and in silence he will kill,
and bring alive again, you with much more rationale.
