The Burning Question

The Burning Question


The Devils horns show above my hedge

Drive me nearer to its edge

His eyes I just catch a glimpse

Hidden he stays the other side

Beyond the garden where I reside


I bid him welcome, be not afraid

Come ye hither do not hide

There is a burning question within my mind

To this wisdom I am blind


Did our Father cast you out?

Pray please tell and end my doubt

For if these tales of old are true

What in heaven’s name did you do?


You! Yes You!

I know you’re there

With your eyes so red

Filled with disappear


With pointy teeth and pointy tail

With your inverted pentagram

Sit, and rest a while  


Come join me and we’ll drink tea

And chat a while

Come, talk with me


Be not afraid nor hesitate

Step inside Eden’s gate

Bring your trident, lend a hand

I’ve seeds to till in this barren land


My words like seeds broadcast

My faith’s so strong, will forever last

Cast your doubt to the breeze

And with us all, knell on one knee


In solidarity now we pray

To unite all colours come what may

For your days are numbered as you know

Beelzebub “Let it go”


Through plagues, wars and famine

Locusts, sin…  Mankind endures

You’ll never win!


Our Father will be mighty pissed

And smite you if you don’t desist


For as God is my witness

I’ll not ask again

For we are NOT Angels

We are men. Yes, and women too


Who if scorned once more

Will banish you

Forever from Heavens door


... My Question?


With all your fire and brimstone burning

What is it that you’re still not learning?




Jesus when will we learn?

Hi P

I am reaching the point where truths need telling
from the rooftops we should be yelling.
In future weeks as time moves on
exposing things that are so wrong

The media linchpins on huge pay
telling us what their told to say
BLM, Rights and wrongs
In expensive suits and cars they swan

Sprouting lies untruths propaganda
Its time to take a proper gander
The Devil's own cunning stunt
He really is a lying

You know the Cockney rhyme P

May the moguls live in interesting times.

Dr. Kishore and Shifa, thank you both for reading and leaving a sign of your appreciation.

It could be seen as flippant, sacrilege, blasphemy even by some.

Truly, of which none are intended.

Ha...better the devil you know. An entertaining "run" through the
constant battle between mankind and its dark side - invested in the
form of the devil from down below - or somewhere!
