TSUL ESNES DNA (Puzzle Poetry)

A demon staked a 7, 5, 4, 8, 2, 9, 3, 10, 1, 6
…with ten numbers
And staked 7, 5, 4, 8, 2, 9, 3, 1, 6
…with nine numbers
He went on to stake 7, 5, 4, 8, 2, 3, 1, 6
…with eight numbers
And proceeded to stake 7, 5, 4, 2, 3, 1, 6
…with seven numbers
God approved his choices casting 5, 4, 2, 3, 1, 6
…with six numbers
And allowed an angel to use 3, 5, 4, 2, 1
…for his five numbers
2, 3, 1, 4
…for his four numbers
And 1, 3, 2 for his three numbers
God turned the numbers to be fair
So the stakes are up

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
