I like the song "Africa" by Toto, but

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

Is a real misfire of a last line there

Like, you're comparing a tall mountain to a tall mountain

    Olympus is more than just a mountain

    yeah, i kinda read the line as "this regular mountain feels like this thing from myth and legend (which is also a real mountain in the world)"
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    That is what it means, it's just kinda awkward and tryhard?
  • you've completely ruined an ambiguously canon timeline for no reason
    The line is slightly awkward but honestly who cares that much
  • Whate'er is born of mortal birth/Must be consumèd with the earth,
    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    If I cannot explain about extremely minor irritations in life, then we are no longer a free country

    I'm sorry but I hate your freedom, it's nothing personal
