And they have left us with the things pinned on the bulletin board.
And the night, the endless, muggy night that is invading our school.”

Arose from out the azure main,
This was the charter of her land,
And guardian angels sung the strain:
Rule, Britannia! Britannia rules the waves!
Britons never shall be slaves.”
