Tonight let’s party freely, with the low-tier demons from Hell In this feast of corruption, What you’ll see is… A cruelty made wicked by its own innocence. Close and Open, Demons and the Dead A cat who lost his leg grins “Let’s play, little miss.” The red cord tied to its collar Is no replacement for a leg ya ya ya ya no no no Rows of wooden grave markers sing “Let’s dance, little miss.” The flowers that bloomed with such stealth at my feet Grimace and grumble The carp streamer shows me its belly A belly filled with skulls Yai Yai—Let’s go play Yai Yai—Laugh, now, laugh Rai Rai—Close hands, open hands Rai Rai—Demons and the Dead One, two, three—Open your hands Five, six, seven—Put them in the air Dangling by the collar from a pine tree All together all together, close them again Clap your hands for a pointless side show
Then throw it away into the fire No one else cares (No one else cares) Turn a blind eye to others’ misfortune! Yai Yai—Let’s have a child Yai Yai—Wander and grumble Rai Rai—Follow along, succumb to the charms Rai Rai—Demons and the Dead One, two, three—Open your hands Five, six, seven—Put them in the air Work up an appetite before the chicken cries One, two, three—Come again tomorrow Seething with thirst like an ogre or rakshasa,
drink the hot blood of a struggling python. Nothing lasts forever.
Even as I’m saying this, various changes are happening. But, what am talking about? Oh well, let’s end our idle gossip. Now, clap your hands. One, two, three—See you tomorrow!
