"Invictus" is the poem more famous from Ernest Henley (23/8/1849) , wich one appears on Clint Eastwood film of same name and talk about mentality change in sudafrica when Nelson Mandela take the power.

maybe can be usefull for marketings purposes.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.


In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.


Let's go!

We could always rework the equally inspiring and deeply moving DuckTales into DAC-Tales?

"Life is like a hurricane here in DAC-burg
Exchanges, gaming, charities, it's a DAC-blur!
Might solve a mystery
Or rewrite history!
[Chorus]
DAC-Tales! Woo-oo!
Everyday we're out there making
DAC-Tales! Woo-oo!
Tales of derring do-bad and good
Luck Tales! Woo-oo!
D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's an oppressive government out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...
[Chorus]
DAC-Tales! Woo-oo"
