Another query from Finn, who was shocked at this worrying gap in police jurisdiction.
Attention please, citizen. We’re the police.
Defy our authority? No one would dare!
We demand that at once you desist and you cease!
I AM A VOLCANO AND I DO NOT CARE.
You’re a very fine mountain, you’re right to be proud:
You can be picturesque and enjoyed on a hike
But no smoking! no rumbling! It isn’t allowed!
I AM A VOLCANO. I’LL DO WHAT I LIKE.
Your ash cloud’s a menace, and we must demand
That you try to control all the lava you spatter
You’re subject, you know, to the law of the land.
I AM A VOLCANO AND YOU DO NOT MATTER.
The villagers tell us you can’t be controlled
But of course, they are not the police – what do they know?
You’re under arrest so just stop it! Be told!
AND NOW THAT YOU’VE TOLD ME, I’M STILL A VOLCANO.
