Sadness, Sorrow, Malice and Despair

Sadness made his way down stairs
T’was not his house; it was Despair’s
An empty cup, some stale bread
Well, what did I expect, he said
Then made his way back up to bed

Sorrow had moved in next door
She’d heard the neighbourhood was poor
And living there was cheap and callous
But then she did not suit a palace
And so she lived there without Malice

Malice, on the other hand
He was a sharp successful man
Who lived upon a baron hill
And sewed the wind that blew in ill
And with Remorse he lives there still

And what had happened to Despair?
She met a man who wasn’t there
They left together, so I’m told
To search for their lost pot of gold
And never tire of growing old

No, but not a bad idea thanks Lib. whee

Although the mood is a little too flippant to inspire a song such as your poem did...

My name is unimportant
And my job you could call mean
But I like the work and I do it well
That's enough for me.
I think there was a time when I
Could do, and did, much more.
I have dreams in which I captain the ship
And hear the ocean roar.
I've lived alone for all I can remember
That only means some six or seven years.
I would rather be nobody else,
I'm happy as I am.
All I need is in my way
And you see no one expects too much from me.
People cry, but no one asks me to advise them.
They want to know but they don't ask me how.
That's for someone else and not for me, I don't know.
Lucky me.
My friends think that I should be trying
To find out who I was.
But I feel that road would bring me pain
And too much would be lost.
How I am is how I'm meant to be now,
Anyhow there's things I see more clearly
Than those whose heads are searching in the clouds
to make discoveries,
And maybe fail to see
What's on the ground beneath their feet, not hard to find.
People cry, but no one asks me to advise them
They want to know but they don't ask me how,
That's for someone else and not for me, I don't know.
Lucky me.
No one asks me to advise them.
They want to know but they don't ask me how.
That's for someone else and not for me, I don't know.
Lucky me - oh.
