Life Is Short So Be Nice

The devil is knocking at your door are you going to open it? 

Do you think ignoring him will make him leave a card from his jacket? 

The devil waits for no one, he claims what he is owed

So say good bye to the ones that you loved
Because your door just exploded into splinters 

The room has become as cold as a million winters 

The devil calmly walks toward you shaking his head 

You feel like nothing has changed but you must be dead 
Why else is the devil standing in your living room 

Should you try to run or hit him with a broom? 

The devil answers saying, “if you run I’ll make your legs turn into snakes

And your broom will burst into flames burning you like your mom’s cakes 
You begin to cry replaying your life in your mind

The devil pulls out a pocket watch and gives it a wind

They he speaks again, ” I’m on a schedule so if you could cooperate 

Because you would hate to make me run late.”
You have lived your life and made your decisions 

It is too late for forgiveness, prayer, or interventions 

So this should be a cautionary tell to the rest of us 

Be humble and kind because you never know when you’ll ride the Devil’s bus
