Retort to the Devil...

They call you the fallen one,with short tuffted curls
the one responsible for the chaos in the world
you may be the cause,as we live the effect
but your time is near,as you continue to infect

Like an invisible predator,you prey on the weak
like a pride of lions,you pounce on the meek
false pride as it is,your rebellious tirades
the lamb shall arrive to expose your charade

You've enjoyed this sadomasochism way too much
mad puppeteer with an unseen touch
unconscionable,incorrigible,shameless you believe
disgraced by your own doing,from tricks up your sleeve

There are some whom believe,even you have a purpose
hard to conceive,as you delight being murderous
ravager of souls and the misled conscience 
fantasy and fallacy are amusements fictitious

But I...

Sheathed in light,resistant to your malice
filled to the brim like a holy chalice
illusory charms deflect from the scene
impermeable am I,to your vicious deeds...
how you conduct your kangaroo court......

    This is quite an appropriate response to evil incarnate. I do like the way you stood up to Satan and showed him you are impermiable to his temptations. Awesome last line, Jay! Enjoyed your poem very much. Love, Carolyn

    A very powerful write you have penned for us. I believe we must always be on guard for the devil is strong and he comes in disguish to trick us, so we must always be " sheathed in light" God's heavenly light is there for each one of us, all we need do is ask and the devil cannot touch us~~
