Mr. Heart-Breaker!

Life is a risk
life is all about you
you got to swallow away
don give up in this game
its a game you got to play
you're the boss
destined to play cards
eating crabs and octopuses
large meals with hot pepper soup
good timing day cat man
Mr heart-breaker!

Mr. heart-breaker
colored like a chameleon
like a petrol station
whats with the game
you play with every heart you see?
be careful before you loose
you've arouse so much pain
to those who pour their hearts
you desire every taste
a liar, heart-breaker specie
one hell of a being
one day, you'll be a fry
Mr. heart-breaker.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
