A DANCE WITH THE DEVIL

Dance with the devil all you want,
But you don’t get to call the shots,
The devil decides when the dance stops,
Until then you dance along.

Dance with the might of a herd
Let lose, be free as a bird
Dance like a leaf in the yard
Dance with moves never heard.

Shake it out and off; all of it,
Unburden yourself bit by bit,
Cast your burdens and quit,
And Unto the dance submit.

Dance with your fangs up in the air
But in your heart hold a silent prayer
For when the devil is done with his share
His tormentous pangs you won’t bare.

Dance with the devil all you want,
But you don’t get to call the shots,
The devil decides when the dance stops,
Until then you dance along.
