it’s the only way…

¤

¤

¤

dark of  night…   light of  day
makes no matter for what i have to say

¤

pretty little thing,  though a bit too fey
you better watch out…   you better learn to pray

¤

to god in heaven or preacher’s son in the hay
ask for forgiveness…   it’s the only way

¤

yah,  ask for forgiveness
else you’ll have to pay

¤

ask for forgiveness
 it’s the only way

¤

yah,  ask for forgiveness
else you’ll have to pay

¤

ask for forgiveness
or there’ll be hell to pay

“Gotta Serve Somebody”

i wrote the poem before finding the song though { in my head,  at least }  the rhythm of  the poem sounds as if  made for the song.   i think this is the first rhyming poem i’ve ever written that i like ~ i hope you do,  too.
