Address to the Devil

Auld Clootie of corruption fame,
how smooth your fork-ed hiss,
deceiving hearts and tickling ears
with your sweet, seductive kiss.

Oh, master of enticement
how fragrant is your breath,
while whispering temptation,
condemning souls to death. 

And in this wicked world we're 
bound by your irreverent reign
'til heaven strikes a fatal blow
to your unhallowed name.

    Thivia, best wishes towards the contest! I most enjoyed reading your poem about 'Auld Clootie.' I am happy to see that poor Lucifer wasn't mislabelled in this poem, and the Devil was given his due. Just kidding :D I noticed that you are really on a comment spree....just be careful, because it can become very addicting! My name is Chris, and I am a comment-addict. First step is non-denial! :D~Chris
