Sheepish Ambition

If the thought of hope is not enough [P]

To enervate the acolyte's devotions [Roland]

The hope of thought will surely snuff [Apsley]

Out even Saint Bartholomew's emotions [Beefy]

If thoughts of peace will not suffice [Stacy Alexander]

To carry us towards our quest of peace [Suzanne]

The maybe good old-fashioned avarice [Grayman]

That we ascribe so fondly to the geese [Apsley]

A treaty of forbearance unambiguously porous [P. Hilario]

As leaky as a defrocked soul [keith c]

Forbearing the treaty specifically for us [Grayman]

As windfarms take the place of Old King Coal [Beefy]

If the thought of joy will not avail [Anon.]

to exeed our fears of pain [Craig Corbett]

Then go back to your hollow shell, And never rise again. [Anon.]

That's all [Beefy]
