I'm bored so I thought I'd try my hand at writing a ballad. If it's not what you musical or artsy people consider a "Classical" ballad, tough, I don't care ;)

A long time ago in a forum far far away
There lived a peaceful Flannel Man, minding his own business day by day

Then one day a cruel and evil Tyrant got up and said:
"Flannel is banned"

So the heroic and handsome Flannel man rebelled
And the Tyrant did not react to this news very well

He ordered his wizard
He ordered his orcs
He ordered some take out, complete with a spork

But alas, there was nothing the Tyrant could do
The Flannel Avenger beat him, yes it's true.

The Land of Flannel was established as Free
But the SSIRA and IHCofC just couldn't seem to see

The came with Edicts and dictates and books
The Flannel Man dismissed them as kooks

Today the land of Flannel remains free
And a haven from Tyranny, all thanks to me

Fictional means its not based on any actual ontological references. Especially the fifth stanza....

Actually, pretty much everything from the 5th stanza on down! ;)

Yeah, well, the Ode to the Tyrant is the only thing you Tyrants have going for you, and it's not that flattering.
