Horsemen galloping,
    brandishing swords and spears,
Dead bodies rotting in the street,
    corpses stacked like cordwood,
Bodies in every gutter and alley,
    clogging every intersection!
And whores! Whores without end!

Fatally seductive, you’re the Witch of Seduction,
    luring nations to their ruin with your evil spells.
