CUSTODY WITH LUCIFER

LUCIFER STARED HARD AT ME,FUMING:

INCISORS GLEAMING HOT,MENACING-

BLACK BLOOD CRAWLING FROM THE RIGHT EYE

WHICH MADE ME TREMBLE WITH A SIGH.

 

"THOU RENDETH MY GARMENT-

AN ENJOYED EXERCISE-

HI! HA! WHERE NOW ART THOU,

THAN AT HOME AND LARMENT."

 

MY SOUL STARED,SHOCKED AND 'FRAID-

"WHERE STANDS HE THAT YOU WORSHIPPED?

WON'T HE COME SAVE THEE?

THOU CURSED ME TO PRAISE 'IM-

 

"NOW I SHALL ENJOY THY TRUST,

HYPOCRITE FROM THE EARTH-

AND MY BOWL OF BROTH BE SWEET

WHILE MY FURNACE SHALL BURN IN ITS PIT.
