Not sure where this is from, but it makes a point:
Other than their praise for the Sandanistas, I thought it was pretty good.
Of course, it has been said before:
When I sally forth to seek my prey
I help myself in a royal way.

If he wants to call his crown his own,
Must manage somehow to get through
