The Devil Made Me Do It

Gosh-darn-it! Dog-gone-it! What’s THAT all about? 
Somehow it feels better to spit out and shout
Offensive pain-remedies
(A string of obscenities)
Exorcizing demons by cussing them out

    Hi Tim; Thanks for reading my poem. Your poem here brought back memories. when my daughter was little and she did something wrong - She would always say - mommy - the devil made me do it. This is a different way of looking at things. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla
