Then the priest found the little baby
And made the family take him back
But up and down, they swore it weren't the same kid as before,
And they named him "Konstantin" - it sure beat "Jack" ...
When Konstantin was a young man,
He travelled near and far
The Earth men seemed to swaller anything to live on Taler
So they sold Earth and they travelled to that star...
When Konstantin found the revolution,
The Earth carried a heavy load
The Vegans though they ruled, but the Radpol wasn't fooled,
And they nuked each resort until it glowed...
Now, Konstantin had caught a Vegan fungus,
One side of his face looked like a map,
But forty years away, "Conrad" hadn't aged a day
And the women flowed like ale from a tap,
It took a strong man not to fall into the trap
Oh, Conrad was strong but also cunning
And no fugitive was he.
He got a top government post easy as you'd butter toast
And the Earthgov though he used his true I.D.
Yes, Vite-Stats bought his new I.D.
Now Conrad worked hard for forty years
To make his job a sinecure
But when he finally took one June for his own honeymoon,
Some Vegan wanted him to guid a tour,
Cort Myshtigo wanted Conrad for the tour
So Conrad flew off to Port-au-Prince
To relive the Vegan of his heavy load,
But when he walked in, Who's Who On Earth awaited him,
And Hasan the Assisin was in tow
The yellow-eyed assassin was in tow
When Conrad collected all the details,
The one thing that not a soul would speak
Was, when everything was done, the score was umpty-ump to one
Myshitgo would not live out the week,
Without Conrad, he just wouldn't last a week.
copyright 1993 by Gerald L. Bliss. I have written 9 verses, and filled in the background material plus made it all the way to Chapter 2. If this ever gets finished, chances are it will be the size of "The Ball of Ballyknure". I did not intend to write the Eddas. Let someone else finish it, or we could just leave Conrad hanging here...
