Demon On Your Shoulder, Angel On The Other

This one has been a labor of love, took nearly 3 weeks to write. Just couldn't get the meter right.
But with that said I think it works now.


Demonize the evil, to welcome in the good A youthful born upheaval, deciding where you stood, Rebellion touted over, honoring thy mother; A demon on your shoulder, an angel on the other! A schism, dormant, lies in every waking soul Consistently one tries to wrangle back control, From the feuding older than Abel and his brother; A demon on your shoulder, an angel on the other! Civilized of heart, conflicting symmetry Angelic swoons impart a wooing devilry, Blood pumping colder, lopsided one shall smother; A demon on your shoulder, an angel on the other! Twisting to and fro ‘tween good and evil deeds All the while you’ll know only one succeeds, Give in to the bolder as there’ll never be another Demon on your shoulder or angel on the other! 6/10/2013 © Copyright 2013 Adam Parker
