Curse

Darkling of stealthy in some cauldrons iron pit a pestilent brew stirred by centuries breathed upon vaporous ignoble spells such a voodoo curse to strip the innocent rendered in black swallow venom bid them to drink Yet poison by pin drop is slowly added a curtain so black seethed implicated in vile purpose to betray and to all life a foe bring the acolytes to fallen and damn them all Nail them high on bloodied wrist and gather sanction to fears egress let them inherit the torment of its silence and lay division by insidious potion this separation of human from spirit And by foul word utter this incantation and in sweet mouth offer false revelation so to the priesthood of economical demons impart the whiplash of a lie and in torture the demonic shall control them Lay sickly the veil on the eyes of truth in seizing, grasping every falsehood trample life to the unquestioning dust leave the tie to eternity bereft and call it death By apples Eve and Adams snake Edens garden and the world remake a pestilent brew stirred by centuries and lay division by insidious potion this separation of human from spirit
