First verse by Dragonfly, next and every other verse by Lady Bleaux.

 
A new force bursts forth
With the rising of the sun,
Never used before

Never used before
Is the deceptive promise
Of a good sales pitch

Of a good sales pitch
Or the slime on a fresh eel
Which is the slicker

Which is the slicker
Lines of a ladies man or
a used car salesman

A used car salesman
Preys on greed in the buyer
Something for nothing

Something for nothing
perhaps innocent desire
Entering contests

Entering contests
Is like buying a lottery ticket
Wishing on a star

Wishing on a star
As most dreamers often do
No matter the age

No matter the age
It's a plethora of dreams
Dearth of common sense

Dearth of common sense
But there's lots of fun to be had
Being frivolous

Being frivolous
Is like icing on life's cake...
Sweet and very light

Sweet and very light
The great delight of whipped cream
But pay in the "end"...

But pay in the end
Or lose your credit status...
Who are those people

Who are those people
sitting smugly behind desks
deciding our fates

Deciding our fates
Must be really boring tasks
God's work never ending

God's work never ending
With man's acts of injustice
Sins of prejudice

Sins of prejudice
Find homes with the ignorant...
Poor misguided fools

Poor misguided fools
the ignorant and gossips
Ruin lives without care

Ruin lives without care
Destroy hope unfeelingly
You will be repaid!

You will be repaid
When you are least expecting
Then it's pay back time!

Then it's pay back time
Like at the O. K corral
Don't draw till ready

Don't draw till ready
At all times keep your finger
Right on the trigger...

Right on the trigger
And the bad guy in your sights
Keep steady partner

Keep steady partner
Follow the trails of honor
Fighting a brave fight...

Fighting a brave fight
Puts bright fire in your heart
and knots on your head

And knots on your head
when trying to understand
The opposite sex

The opposite sex
Also factually called
My alien pet

My alien pet
Shadow that hears and sees all
Dang nagging conscience!

Dang nagging conscience...
Why can't I have a cricket?
Puppets are lucky

Puppets are lucky
Perhaps not if married to
The Puppet Master!

The Puppet Master
Never seems to realize
He has strings also

He has strings also
Dance, twist and tangle the strings
Be free! Fight control!

Be free, fight control
But don't commit suicide
Some controls are good

Some controls are good
Gripping that four on the floor
Flying in the wind...

Flying in the wind
Lifted on Creator's breath...
The Eagle's glory

The Eagle's glory
In all it's beauty and strength
Soars forever free...

Soars forever free
And alights in strange places...
Imagination

Imagination
And mine works overtime...
Mysteries of the mind...

Mysteries of the mind
Go on and on forever
New ones for each mind

New ones for each mind
a brilliance of ideas
In inquiring minds

In inquiring minds
The search is the driving force
Not the love of facts

Not the love of facts
Forms many legends and myths
Teaching great lessons

Teaching great lessons
Is the role of nature's plan
In simplicity

In simplicity
"User friendly" promises
Computer merchants

Computer merchants
A whole new breed of tricky
Evasive salesmen

Evasive salesmen
Know only the price tag and
Their own commission

Their own commission
Marks their level of success...
Tokens in the game

Tokens in the game
Diamonds prove to be the best!
Symbols of true love...

Symbols of true love
More lasting than love itself
How fickle we are

How fickle we are
Breaking hearts along the way
Where did true love go?

Where did true love go
The same place as good manners
Respect and honor

Respect and honor
Must be earned and well deserved
Not just vain glory...

Not just vain glory
Is the fuel for self-esteem...
Prejudice works too

Prejudice works too
Passed down from parent to child
Misguided teachings...

Misguided teachings
Often they are unspoken
Silent and deadly

Silent and deadly
Low lying snakes in the grass
And untrue lovers

And untrue lovers
Just sail through life unaware
What they sow, they'll reap

What they sow, they'll reap
And end up meeting their match
Unexpectedly!

Unexpectedly
Is how Cupid ambushes...
Sly little cherub

Sly little cherub
Shoots beguiling arrows
At defenseless hearts

At defenseless hearts
And innocent, naive minds
Fly evil predators

Fly evil predators
Through windows on summer nights
Those darn mosquitoes!

Those darn mosquitoes
Just another case in point where
Only the females bite

Only the females bite
A true nature's own revenge
Females in action...

Females in action...
Put the Hurricanes to shame
Soft velvet buzz saws

Soft velvet buzz saws
Techniques taught by our Mothers
Sisterhood secrets...

Sisterhood secrets
Have dribbled over to men
How do we use them?

How do we use them
Those that cannot be used are ...
Wily as a fox!

Wily as a fox
Doesn't work, Wily is a
Tricky Coyote

Tricky Coyote
He thinks he's going to win
But he's been "out foxed"...

But he's been out foxed
By the trickiest of all...
A vixen, of course

A vixen, of course
Knows how to be cunning by...
Plying secret charms

Plying secret charms
Is all part of the game...
Real life "Hide and Seek"

Real life "Hide and Seek"
Seeking love and fortune, we're
Hunters in the game

Hunters in the game
Also must be "game" hunters
No place for wimps

No place for wimps
When there in the dentist's chair
Die! My coward's heart...

Die my coward's heart
And rise again to glory...
Return to courage

Return to courage
Worry is an enemy
You must bravely fight

You must bravely fight
My friend, each and every day
Never lose control

Never lose control
when anger and tempers flare
Calm the sea of rage

Calm the sea of rage
Smooth waters always run deep
Peace is in the depths

Peace is in the depths
if you but just seek and look
Within your own soul...

Within your own soul
Is the universe center...
It's where I now stand.

It's where I now stand
Earth grounded, but with dreams that
fly free on the wind

Fly free on the wind
But keep the tail off the trees
They love to eat kites

They love to eat kites
What else is a tree to do
To have fun in March

To have fun in March
Pet the wind if it's lamb-like...
Don't tease the lion

Don't tease the lion
if he's hungry, best watch out...
You've riled a wild beast

You've riled a wild beast
When you say someone is fat
Truth can be so cruel

Truth can be so cruel
But also necessary
Else we live with lies...

Else we live with lies
Of our own making
Listen to our friends

Listen to our friends
Sometimes gentle words can soothe
A sad broken heart

A sad broken heat
Can rise like the morning sun
Eternally new

Eternally new
The breath and lightness of Spring's
Aura of freshness...
