Cordelia's Reply to Ezar

Work Text:

My Bible says the meek are blessed
Your planet kills and eats the flawed—
But he who laughs the last laughs best

Meekness—or just rage repressed?
Terror at home, the sword abroad
My Bible says the meek are blessed

You put his honor to the test
He lay down, you rode rough-shod
But he who laughs the last laughs best

And now the Empire's your bequest
Did you expect him over-awed?
My Bible says the meek are blessed

So you go to your final rest
Praying that there is no God
But he who laughs the last laughs best

The conman says: You can't defraud
An honest man. Isn't that odd?
My Bible says the meek are blessed
For he who laughs the last laughs best
