Just roughly, something like this…
But at the very end, the Wicked Witch of the West lets it be known she is still around…
And so, meanwhile, in Washington, D.C…
Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him,
And He turn away His wrath from him.
Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the wicked;
For there will be no prospect for the evil man;
The lamp of the wicked will be put out.
My son, fear the Lord and the king;
Do not associate with those given to change;
For their calamity will rise suddenly,
And who knows the ruin those two can bring?
- Proverbs 24:17-22, emphasis added (and in the United States of America, We the People are “King” under God)
