We Fight for the Scottish Succession!But the Mightiest Baron, the Smartest,Was the one that from Old, Staid Aside**.When his Buddies would Fluster,He'd let them be Master,He would let All the Others Decide.Charlie gave them some nice Forest Rivers,From the Fruits of the Mohawk Concession.And from Piedmont to Blue Ridge,To the Shenandoah soft sludge,Sprawled the Heirs of the the Scottish Succession.And so they grew Fruitful and Plentie***,Their Spawn claimed the Land as their Own.Powhattan's descendantsWere removed to the Highlands,While they watched Amber Fields getting Sown.And so why, you now Cry, do you Bother?To Bore Us, with such Manic Depression?Well....For Book Two you shall Wait,'Cause it's never too Late!For the War of the Scottish Succession.And that is All for Now! Go to sleep. The Original Cockroach never had that many Verses!SOL-2______________________________________________________Notes:* For those times, that was called "good"...
