Your Life Is Based On Shifting Sand

This poem is for people who think they can hide their evil and who think that evil makes them strong. It was written using couplets and quatrains.

Attacking, mocking, killing foes
Your pride does swell as power grows
Though watching over all the land
Your life is based on shifting sand

The body is your only hope
When it is gone, how will you cope?
Your mind is weak from all your fights
You snuffed out many lives and lights

You cannot show your plan or face
For that would mean complete disgrace
You hide yourself with walls of lies
Your soul is rotting as it dies

Attacking, mocking, killing foes
Your pride does swell as power grows
Though watching over all the land
Your life is based on shifting sand

Who could have made a better plan?
A wiser one nobody can
Your end was drafted from the start
For only you will break your heart

Your wicked plans will all rebound
Your evil thoughts will you surround
You won’t endure what you have made
You’ll step upon each mine you laid

Attacking, mocking, killing foes
Your pride does swell as power grows
Though watching over all the land
Your life is based on shifting sand

So all your henchmen follow suit
They must return all of their loot
What can maintain their lives at last
When all of their supports have passed?

No gold can form a solid base
Machines will not their lives replace
All idols will fall in the end
And death can never life extend

Attacking, mocking, killing foes
Your pride does swell as power grows
Though watching over all the land
Your life is based on shifting sand
