All the words turned to air.
Simply disappeared into the ether.
At first we thought you'd stolen them.
Maybe one or two but not three million.
In three thousand four hundred languages.
We want them back so do cough up.
Or you'll go to jail for a very long time.
Do we have a deal?
The missing words for your liberty?
Nice words like beer and books.
I'll give you thirty minutes to decide.
Then it's war with the word police.
You see the blame is on you.
For being uneducated and dim.
Forget the real reason.
Why our words disappeared.
You must be blamed.
And I'll be the hero forevermore.
