He laughs as he scatters his seed of discord
attempting to sway those of courage.
The father of lies,
deceiving the wise
He's the ruin of many a marriage.
"Don't you know you deserve to be happy on earth?"
Make the best of your time here below.
Fellow, believe me
I would not deceive ye
get rid of your worry and woe."
"You need not a wife who bickers and beckons.
Your time is your own to enjoy.
Get rid of her quickly
before you get sickly
or yoked with a small baby boy."
"The grass my dear fellow, is green on the far side
I tell you for sure, this I know.
Do look around
for the husband that knows when to go."
To be swayed by his reason is a matter of treason.
Tread slowly amidst it, by golly!
for nearing the end
you will need to defend
your decisions regarding this folly.
