Evil

Like a shining little star

You arrive in our midst

And lighten our spirit

You bring joy to our heart

And smile to our lips

You are so meek and humble

Soft in the body and soul

Your heart so pure

Like the morning dew

You know no evil

Though you will still master it.

Time has gone

Time has passed

You are the terror of the day and night

You take a leap

The earth quakes

You smile, the world cries.

The world takes a nap while you keep vigil

The world is at your feet

Until the day when you go to sleep, forever.

Like a log of wood

And your evil deeds will wear you out

Before you crawl to the throne.
