Cakes and Ale


There ain’t no Garden of Eden

and grass ain’t greener in Sweden

don’t know where all this is leadin’?

Seek not the Holy Grail

Spend not your daze in dreaming

seeing falls short of believing

sands of time ever streaming

Plans of Perfection but Fail

Todays are as good as tomorrow

joys rarely keep up with sorrow

whether life be whole or hollow

Kingdoms get lost for a nail

The flame but flickers, don’t blow it

hubris is futile, don’t show it

O Evil is real , you know it

it’s All but a Sorry Tale

Times you must grin and bear it

the Force is too fierce: don’t dare it

your spirit is rich , so spare it –

spare some for the cakes and ale

When All looks lost to Doubt and Despair

remember the cakes and ale
