Devil's Challenges and Life Description
Where is my better self?
Resting ruthlessly on a shelf?
There is a little devil
Sometimes sitting in my neck
Whispering in my ear really evil
Challenging me to do really funny things
Never forgetting to tease me
Into crazy adventurous ideas and trips
His vicious lisping voice humming as it sings:
‘Have fun, fun , fun.
Don’t be a fool
The party’s just begun
Play it cool’
All I want is check
How to get him of my back
I’ll shock him now, one, two, three…
He is speechless and I’m free.
Describe loneliness, describe solitude
The people around are loud and rude.
Provide no sympathy for each other
Nobody holds the door open, they just don’t bother
Life’s humble, hard and quick
Often it’s also even erratic
Before you get the thoughts about it right
It’s up and away in a nowhere flight.
So I ask you to think harder,
To believe stronger and live more intense
You haven’t got a second one in the larder
You will enjoy it, it’s merits are immense.
