>So one day I decided
That I’d pluck you out of thin air
Here’s the thing they’ll envy, I declare
I’ll deck you in finery

You shall come to me bedecked
Simpering, ready to parade
Twirl on my arm and promenade
Drink, my pretty, of glory.

Momentary, it shall be
See it if you please, and you’ll know
You, my trusting fool, take the blow
After basking in moonshine.

No, it won’t be long before
You learn your lesson the hard way
Weep for that sordid, lonely day
When I stripped and lay you bare

Cavorting to my music
Dancing in the rain, for them to
Feast their many lustful eyes on you
Till it grew too hard to bear.

You’ll accuse me of misleading
A heart that has known not sorrow,
Fear, pain, a bleak tomorrow-
Don’t- for I am not to blame.

You chose to be tempted away
To trust me, whom you hardly knew
Into my deception you flew
For lack of better judgement.

Now, rest the lament and rise
And though things can fall back in place
Do remember my cunning ways
For I am whom you call Life.
