Fool’s Game

Lady Justice be kind

Lady Justice be good

Lady Justice tell him

This trick is up to no good

Her love will be your doom

I don’t care if she feels good

She only causes pain

What can you expect

From one who is insane

But we all know what they say

Only fools fall in love

And they are often prone

to doing it again
