Miri's Luak Bay Castle

With opal towers and battlements adorned
Of living sapphire, once his native seat;
And fast by, hanging in a golden chain,
This pendent world, in bigness as a star
Of smallest magnitude close by the moon.
Thither, full fraught with mischievous revenge,
Accursed, and in a cursed hour, he hies (Paradise Lost, Part 2).

Where once, it was Paradise...
Do not go-
Where once it was Miri's pride
of great wonder where butts and caves lay
and Nature in all its glory blossomed and flourished...
Do not go-
Ah, it is to fools their Paradise Lost...
where my castle rests in the sky close to the gods
To you mere mortals, dreaming sons and daughters of Miri
Speak and you will be silenced by my mighty forces of wealth for it is written:
you who are meek shall inherit the earth
after we the rich have exploited it...
