Terzanelle, Nr.05 — The Job

This is the job of writers and saints    
turn up at the desk obeying the call  
and do so alone, without complaint  
    
sit in a manner of wonder, that’s all    
open your mind with a curious wait    
turn up at the desk obeying the call    
   
an angel is guarding your muse at the gate    
so none of your foes will suffer to strike -    
open your mind to a curious wait    
   
with freedom to be … just do what you like    
filling your heart with a permanent smile    
so none of your foes will suffer to strike    
   
expressing yourself without any guile    
turn up at the desk with a pen in your hand    
filling your heart with a permanent smile    
   
this is the way, the only demand    
this is the job of writers and saints    
turn up at the desk with a pen in your hand    
and do so alone, without complaint.
