What Do You Want from Me, Fatal Fate?


Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

What do you want from me, fatal fate?
What’s the reason to play a double game?
Why do you think I like fame?
Why do you need to knock at my gate?
Why do you trust that soon or late
I must uselessly implore
Be your victim? Nevermore!
Go to hell! I don’t want to take your bait!
