My Fancy Flies OutMy Fancy Flies OutMy Fancy Flies Out by LordSolarMacharius

Translated by LordSolarMacharius
My fancy flys out on wings made of purest gold
And settles in my lost homeland of old,
Where the air soft and mild smells so warm and sweet,
And the ground is soft beneath my feet.
Where Jordan flows between valleys of emerald,
Where the towers of Zion shone in the days of old!
Oh! My beautiful homeland, now lost to time!
Now only exists in dreams so sublime!
O golden harp, played by the prophets of old!
Why do you hang so silently on the willow, so cold!
Sing a song, and rekindle our memories dear!
Sing us of Israel, of comfort and cheer!
Be mindful of the fate of our country,
Give forth a soft eledgy
So that the angels in heaven take pity,
And return my lost homeland to me!

"Eh, they're picking Mao Zedong. It's no threat to us," Rainbow said dismissively. "So, Applejack, how about you?"
"Ah'm going with this Churchill man. He seems like a neat guy," Applejack said. "Guess that leaves Pinkie Pie and Rarity. How about you two?"
"Oh, sorry, girls
