Good and evil –
And their merits –
Men have argued through history –
As well they should!
Any child can see –
“Good is evil –
All evil is good”
How do you tell evil from good?
Evil does well – good not so good!
Evil’s the one that is free everywhere –
Good is the one that they sell!
You must decide which is heaven –
Which is hell!
Good maintain evil’s a curse! –
But it is plain good’s even worse!
Evil’s the one that they tell you to shun –
Good is the one to embrace
Say that and Satan will laugh right in your face!
The battle between good and evil
Goes back to the start –
Adam and Eve and the apple tore Eden apart!
The key thing about good ‘n’ evil –
Each man has to choose! –
Heaven ‘n’ hell
Is a helluva gamble to lose! –
But as I peruse
This world we abuse –
It’s hell that we choose –
And heaven must lose!
Evil is everywhere –
Good doesn’t have a prayer!
Good is commendable –
Evil is viable
Good may be thankable!
Evil is bankable!
Evil’s for me – you can have good!
Doesn’t suit me to be Robin Hood!
S’easier by far, from the way that things are,
To remain good ‘n’ evil
Than try to be evil and good!
