For the day my mother give birth to me,
The sun refuse to shine, and the wind ceased blowing.
Many mothers that day gave birth, but to deformed children.
Plagues and pestilence pestered the cities, for atomic eruption
raged in the mountains. Philosophers, scientists, professors said
the world is come to an end, but no, it was me, a monarch was born.
Master of all I survey, and my right were none could dispute.
