“Triolet on a Line Apocryphally Attributed to Martin Luther”

“Triolet on a Line Apocryphally Attributed to Martin Luther”

“Why should the Devil get all the good tunes,
The booze and the neon and Saturday night,
The swaying in darkness, the lovers like spoons?
Why should the Devil get all the good tunes?
Does he hum them to while away sad afternoons
And the long, lonesome Sundays? Or sing them for spite?
Why should the Devil get all the good tunes,
The booze and the neon and Saturday night?”

– A.E. Stallings
