Address to the Devil

Auld Clootie of corruption fame, how smooth your fork-ed hiss, deceiving hearts and tickling ears with your sweet, seductive kiss. Oh, master of enticement how fragrant is your breath, while whispering temptation, condemning souls to death. And in this wicked world we're bound by your irreverent reign 'til heaven strikes a fatal blow to your unhallowed name.

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to finally convince an unsuspecting world that he had never actually existed at all. Then...Phffff! Just like that he was gone!! Love reading your poetry, Thvia. My very warmest regards. :) john
