Now The Rules Have Changed (poem)

Updated on September 29, 2015

A quick little ditty

‘bout a lad named Smitty

That I hope you will find witty

For the rules have changed


He was gifted and so pretty

All things he put to pity

Anyone who was not privy

That the rules had changed


He soon went into business

All his gifts he put to witness

Brush aside those lax and witless

For the rules he changed


His power grew much higher

Gifted Smitty was on fire

But his wealth became his mire

And the rule soon changed


For one night in a bleak corner

Was for him a scene of horror

Once was colleague turned to moaner

Now the rules have changed


Well Smitty got to heaven

Where he found his hopes to get in

Were his gifts he shared with brethren

For the rules don’t change

      unstable as the world continues rules changing , till the Prince of Peace ends it and establishes once for all never changing rule

      In this crazy world someone is always changing the rules. Love that Elvis song.
