the demonologist

think of the state of boredom 
in which 45% of americans exist,
wherein they believe their lives are
exciting enough
to have “ghosts” visit them from
“beyond”…

understand that the demonologist
has read all the works of fiction & 
uses them to “combat” the “specters”
that are conjured up in the heads of these
bored
bored
bored
americans.

just like in the MOVIE
created in HOLLYWOOD,
he rambles biblical nonsense
speaking of “jesus”
in order to 
“exorcize” the 
“demons.”

the power of “christ” compels you…
the power of “christ” compels you…
the power of “christ” compels you…

is there any coincidence that 
these bored individuals have lived in the
SAME HOUSE
in the
SAME TOWN
working at the
SAME JOB
for decades?

might not these mighty mundane morons
be making something up in their heads
in order to convince themselves that
their lives are
interesting?

the demonologist plays the static sounds, 
the “EVP’s”
that the believers think are voices from the 
dead
&
he encourages them to spill their emotional blood
out on the table for him to 
analyze & get back to them with his assessment.

they feel like they are a part of something,
they feel that finally someone is taking their insanity
seriously…
now,
with the lights down low &
the candles out,
the demonologist whispers to himself
“genius.”
