    Poem Commentary

    Wrote this poem last night while thinking of my relative. It didn't post so I did something wrong revised it a bit and here it is again.

    LOOK OUT FOR THE DEVIL


    When the Devil starts his work their is rhythm in his beat
    He will clap his tiny  hands
    And will stomp his little feet
    So if this is what you believe
    Then you're headed for defeat
    It's why he's called the Devil

    His hands are grasping talons
    Those hooves are shod in giant clogs
    The illusions he creates are to keep you in a fog
    He's the master of deception
    Who will drag you through the bog
    Why not? He is the Devil

    Just walk the straight and narrow
    For the path he cuts is wide
    He will whisper in your ears
    create a sense of foolish pride
    Isolate you from all good
    Until He's sure you're on his side
    Oh he's clever, he's the Devil

    He's the champion of evil
    Engineering your defeat
    The winner's been declared
    The one he simply cannot beat
    You better change your corner
    Or you'll have to face the heat
    The champ already beat the Devil

    The Victor grants free will
    He won't play those dirty games
    He lets you make free choices
    Love and Mercy are his names
    He's paid for all your sins
    So do not act so lame
    For soon he'll crush the Devil

    1 Peter 5:8 - [Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.] Indeed his snares are clever. He knows the evil that lays in us. A good poem with eyes wide open. Some things he offers are tempting to the fullest.....

    Why thanks, we all have to look out for the Devil. let one little thing go wrong and he's ready to whisper all that negative mess in our ears.

    I wrote that and sent it to my minister who liked it and he said exactly the same as you.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
