Evil can Retire


Lazy days and dogs that won't stir,

I hope you're happy

I hope that you're

Sincerly relaxed and seriously invested

In the ethical victories over those you've bested.


I bet it's great to retire and

Look back at your life.

I bet you don't even miss having kids or a wife.

Maybe this time in the quiet is what you need

To tally your sins and all your good deeds,

But if you feel like you've wasted the


doing wrong then

I hope you and your conscience

Can both get along.
