We Real Cool

we real cool
we have jesus
the devils have only fire

we real cool
we have male, female
to help us
explore each other

the devils can only
play his dirty games
by himself

we real cool
we fight, we cry,
we make up sometimes

we real cool
we prove to God
that his Project X
is phew...a great success
this new creature
can feel, can reason
can create another world!

inspired by

We Real Cool
THE POOL PLAYERS.
SEVEN AT THE GOLDEN SHOVEL.
We real cool. We
Left school. We
Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We
Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We
Jazz June. We
Die soon.
