WE ARE BORG AND WE'RE HERE TO STAY
GONNA 'SSIMLATE YO ASS IN A MAJOR WAY!
Y'know, I myself have tried my hand at a Borg Gangsta Rap, some time ago.
Oh, and on the "communism" subject, I would think the "Ideal" commusist society would best be represented by the Borg. No individuality, no "greed", no "selfishness", all working in collective service for The Common Good--to coin a phrase, "From Each According To His Ability, Blah, Blah, Blah...."
PROLETARIANS OF THE UNIVERSE UNITE
Now...back on topic, So far, it seems like unusualsuspex
wrote my favorite so far:
I must admit, I wrote a set of words to include in a forthcoming fanfic on the grounds that an anthem without words is generally meaningless (IMHO) but anyhoo:
Lift up your voices, Loud and strong,
Banish injustice, Conquer all wrongs,
Join with our bretheren from star to star,
United we stand the Federation
Hope and freedom, free from strife,
Cherish equality, in every life,
Striving in fellowship, heed now these words,
In peace we will thrive, the Federation.
Pretty good. It's not a parody, and it seems like it actually fits with the melody!
My compliments, cadet!
Hey--on the subject of using the Hymn Of The Soviet Union
as a ref for the Cardassian Union's anthem, anyone consider using The Internationale
Hmm...considering the actual lyrics
, the Bajorans come to mind. Just take out the references to communism and the Proletariat, and...
Stand uuuuuuuuuuup, ye victims of oppreeeeeeeeeession--
For the ty-rants--fear--your--might
Cling nooooooooot, so hard to your posseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesions--
FOR YOU HAVE NOUGHT, IF YOU HAVE
And so on....
