The Demon

"...we consider too much the good luck of the early bird, 
and not enough the bad luck of the early worm." 
                                       F. D. Roosevelt 
 
The demon on my shoulder said it best,--
"The grass is greener when the grass is smoked,
It doesnít matter on which path you walked,
All roads will lead to Rome, both east and west...
 
Remember that three lefts will make a right!
That curiosity gave cats a life worth living
Donít read the books, their context is deceiving,
Judge by the cover and youíll be alright!
 
Remember that nobody wins in peace,
Engage in fights as often as you wish!
Learn that the worms will catch the early fish,
And itís the second mouse that gets the cheese!
 
For every penny saved, a secondís lost...
If time is money, -- do not sell it short!
Donít sell your soul for pennies to the Lord--
The Devil buys it at a higher cost."
