United States

When? When will the world learn

How to expect a favor in return?

Why does everything we do

Need not benefit us too?


What’s wrong with spinning a lie,

Especially, if it’s how you get by?

What makes a man become cruel

Following society’s rule?

It’s all a matter of perspective

So learn to be less selective.


How is that that asking for the firstborn

Is something you should choose to scorn?

I gave you this life,

But all you’ve given me is strife.


My name is Rumpelstiltskin, it’s true,

But because of this I promise you,

Now until forevermore

No one could ever love a whore.
