    LOVE AND THE OLYMPIADS: OR
    THE PRIDE OF ETHIOPIA

    By Andre Austin

    Love Battle: Spence vs. The Prince

    Spence: Green eyes weakens myself like Kryptonite
    Blinded by the vision she cast into my sight
    Couldn’t handle the abduction of her during the night
    I never had cause until now to fight

    Spence: My love for her is true blue Romance
    I took her from you during a wonderful dance
    Fear not the sight of your troops that advance
    Mia’s eyes have me in a trance and our loves isn’t by chance

    Prince: Your desire for Mia isn’t love but mere lust
    Mia is mine; tradition says it’s a must
    I will destroy your kingdom founded by Romulus
    Don’t make me tear down these walls and turn it to dust

    Spence: Women aren’t property an object to keep
    I was in love the very first time my eyes took a peep
    Together we shall rest and sleep
    Personally I think your tradition is cheap

    Prince: On an oath on my word I will spare your life
    Be wise young Spence and give up this strife

    Prince: Our traditions are beyond your sense
    Release Mia from your presence
    I will offer a handsome recompense
    What’s the problem with you sir Spence?

    Spence: There’s no problem at all I’m just not convinced
    Mia’s a priceless jewel for me, she’s not worthy to an evil prince

    Spence: The problem could be I’m full of her charm
    Giving her back to Ethiopia might cause some harm

    Prince: For this my rival your hands shall never scratch your head
    From this time on consider yourself as gooder than dead
