Temptation

Come I now to crossroads barren
No help have I which way to go
Now desert me, fame and fortune
My fickleness has naught to show

Such thoughts tend to leave me weary
steeped in mire of my own design
A windblown place, drab and dreary
with no happiness or sunshine

Know I better than there linger
Grand funk is never really grand
Hang the prize a little higher
On solid rock is where I stand
