My needs are urgent, whimsical,
Never have I patience, cannot brook delay
What I want must be done immediately,
Here and now.
Without me nothing gets done, enjoyed or gives peace.
Think I, judge, can feel and see beyond
Sacred I could be or sinful
Merry or mischievous, candid or deceitful
Helpful, guiding or misleading
Could be either nice or nasty.
Not an elf or a goblin
I’m myself all my own
Valour, vigour and vivacity
With features never seen outside
Guided it is when in place.
Things done without my intent
Get out of hand
Reap I only the deserts
Control is beyond me – mine is only to repay.
