Then there's the monkey wrench,
along with the bad luck stench.
At times life sucks,
not to mention being short on bucks.
The shaft will stick,
along the way leave you dead or sick.

Depending on who's behind it,
you can bet they won't quit.
A phony friend,
or just an enemy in the end.
Might be a hit man,
trying to really shorten your life span.

Forward or aft,
watchout for the shaft.
Just when it's least expected,
the shaft can show up undetected.
Might be a devil demand,
the shaft held in your own hand.

I've seen it over and over again.

It is easy to be the brunt of someone elses evil and also it is easy to sabbotage ourself. Best is to try to always be aware.
Take care,
