[A/N: Created year 2012]
Their job’s to sit and think things through
To solve the problems, and to see to
It that nothing ever comes in way
So that they’ll live to see another day
All around them’s chaos and fire
But the Wonderers will never retire
They work to fix the problems in their mind
That’s why they’re always so occupied
Their job’s to sit and close their eyes
Isn’t it tiring not to wake and rise
To see the progress you have done
Shame that still, they have none
Isn’t it tiring to laze about
To frown and never move your mouth
The Wonderers give their life to save
Everyone else who’ll never say,
“Oh thank you, dearies, you’ve cleared our bill!
You’ve solved our problems!” No, they never will
For they are not unseen but overlooked
A minor character in a book
But once, they saved a little girl
Gave her another day to dance and twirl
Less than ten, that was her age
When she was caught, hopeless and caged
By the devil who breathed hot fire
Who everyone knew to be a wretch, a liar
The Wonderers sat and did what they did best
And wondered how to put their wond’rings to the test
Save the innocents, that’s what they do
They’ve saved millions, they will save this one too
But this was the devil, who always wanted
Something in return, and soon he grunted,
“Keep this girl in my hell, that’s what I’ll do!
If you don’t fulfill my condition, behold, I have two!
One, no one shall ever be happy for more
Than a couple of days, or there shall be gore
On the little girlie I have in my command
So destroy them, Wonderers, and I’ll give her where you stand
Two, if the first shall be fulfilled,
The girl’s no exception, she will be killed
If I give her to you, she will be dead
Naught but a corpse, oh yes, I am mad!
But mercy I have, so I ask for just one
Thing from her; and then she can run
Away from me as far she she can
All I ask is for happiness to end
Never shall she be able to smile!
Can you sacrifice the chidlhood of a child
To save the lives of the world you protect?
The world I so wish that I can wreck!”
And so the Wonderers think and think and think
How can they destroy the world’s peace in a blink
Of an eye? But you can see the Wonderer’s decision
You can see it all in your peripheral vision
They saved the girl and no one’s been happy ever
Since for more than a couple o’ days, that’s how it is forever.
