Chris reads a poem by student Evgeny from Russia:

Before you go, I’d like to let you know
that broken hopes can hardly be repaired.
My former friend, you’ve turned into my foe,
you waged this war before it was declared.

Forget my name and play your little game
with those who trust your treacherous endeavour.
My take on you will always be the same,
By lies of yours I’ll be affected never.
