The Devil

An idle mind
is the devils workshop
your laziness
serves as his best prop.

He makes
his plans with such ease
that it is too late
for you to shout cease.

An active mind
can keep him at bay,
it can control
what he has to say.

His plans
are not of any use
when you are
the one who can choose.

Your mind is
your strongest tool
but at times
it can make you look a fool.

To struggle
with it is not a crime
as long as you tell
the devil he’s wasting his time.
