He held no real title.
He turned over a new leaf.
He went from being the most evil
To a righteous son at least.
Now I perceive the tale
And realize something true:
The Hero is now the villain
While the Villain has turned good.
The Titular Prince—
I am quite impressed with
How the Gospel is here so shown—
Not that a sermon can be preached on it
But it shows how bad men can really grow.
For the Prince had taken his warships
And so destroyed many moons;
While the hero, that good man
Had defeated him to prove.
The prince had stolen many lives
Many trillions, it is true.
But, the good man’s good
Turned him to here prove
His strength in battles crude.
His goodness had corrupted him
For evil he nare understood.
Thus, his pure heart nearly destroyed him
And his whole entire troop.
The prince, with family, with lover and child
Saw this righteous man so careless
Gambit his whole world for vile
Tests against a stronger foe.
For the righteous man
With no sin, had only wanted to test
His strength in battle; in battle lust
He went to beat his many foe.
Yet the prince, who tasted great evil—
Now slowly turned to good—
Knew that this was wasteful,
For at war’s outbreak would
The righteous man now see
He wanted to test his strength of army
But nearly plunged his nation to the sea.
Finally, the good man,
Believing himself pure
Turned himself to a Baalim
So truthfully sure
Of his own good deeds.
The wicked man, who tasted evil
Knew how wicked he
Our hero became.
A titular prince is just a pauper,
So he spent it with his family.
Thus is the message
Of the gospel of hope.
Great good which never knew evil
Will in the darkness grope.
For a heart that does not wise
Know that they are bad
Will in the end be callous
And also be God’s foe.
