Go down with the ship


I will not fall below
the standard of absolute
even if the competition
withers and dies

I will not sell myself
for any cheap tricks
I will not dilute myself
they can all try

I will not pander
to thieves and dacoits
I can take all and not
crack before any whip

I will not not flourish
off of pirates' gold
I rather choose to
go down with my ship
