My Evil Demon



There's an evil demon lurking On the edges of my soul I try my best to push him off He's stubborn, very bold He tries to sway my thinking And how I look at things I tell him, “Take a hike! Get lost, you ding-a-ling!” He never seems to listen He insists on causing trouble It's his role he always says I'm about to burst his bubble Demons don't tell me what to do Don't need these guys to coach My standards are extremely high My actions beyond reproach There's an evil demon lurking On the edges of my soul But this here dude's not worried I'm the guy that's in control! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Mine gets the best of me occasionally... It said take the cat home... I did and look where it got me... 2 cats share my Hubby's bed(with a dog or two) and there's no room left for me... And I only get one dog to cuddle with on the couch... Someone in heaven is laughing at me... LOL
