‘I am sorry that I sold you out but let me make amends.
While I was divulging secrets I still kept you close to heart
Within the bigger picture I was on your side from the start.’
‘Is that so?’ said his wary friend, ‘We hope you’re what you seem
Or do you mean to play both sides instead of for our team?’
Said the psycho orphan to his friends, ‘You know I have not lied.
Without my desperate measures the lot of us would have died.
On my word as a traitor I swear my loyalty is real
I can play double agent if you’re willing to make a deal.’
‘Is that so?’ said his naive friend, ‘Your offer sounds sincere.
But we wish to save our siblings and we will sell them dear.’
‘It is good you have integrity and I will tell you why,
For if you have integrity it just means your price is high.
I can offer you your very lives in purchase for your soul.
Abandon the other children and I’ll gladly be your mole.’
‘The logic here is plain to see but your mind is abstruse
Will you not cut us off as well when we are out of use?’
‘The other children are idiots and surely you agree.
To take that pack along with us is a liability.
Is it so wrong to wish to spare my two most beloved friends?
The alternative can only be — well you know how that ends.’
‘To leave our kin to be devoured is still too high a price
Can we shoulder the burden of so large a sacrifice?’
‘There’s no use in this snivelling, I will do what must be done.
But if you insist perhaps I can keep the sacrifice to one.
No matter your suspicions this is our one and only chance
To fool your foes you first fool your friends, so come and join the dance.
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?’
