Beware of Man

Man is both evil and divine,
There’s a dark side to him and a light,
In his darkest hours he tends to shine
but overwhelms weak with his might.

The maker of the gods and the devil
and of blissful heaven and fiery hell,
A savvy creator of good and evil
He’ll con you into your soul to sell.

Be leery of the politician and the priest,
Oh, do abhor them both vehemently,
They’ll make your life hard to persist
and curb your free-will adamantly.

Ha, be wary of him who walks upright
He’s but hunched over with sins he carry,
Distance yourself from him on sight
Safer to charm a snake; Man – you parry.
