Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Dangerous Liason.

The devil's nephew, it was said, came to earth
And made his bed with humans, long ago.

Now when she saw him, standing there. full girthed,
Golden-haired, tall and handsome, bowing low,
She stared. 'I will have his heart as mine' she
Said. Next day she bought a potion, her fair
Hair she would make red, then on spending spree
She ordered gown of jewelled blue. Rarely
Was there seen a more exotic queen. When
Next time a Ball was held she saw to it
That her appearance would be timed. At ten
In she went, and once his roving eyes had lit
On her, she knew success. He straightway came
Striding to her side, his arrogance aglow
With lust, ravage her he must that night. Games
Like these he knew. For hours they danced, so
The story goes, as morning rose he swept
Her into bed. It seemed her wily act
Had met it's goal. He did not prove inept.

Nine months passed. Birthing then a mutant child,
Half human-devil, frame so strong it took
The then world by surprise, and drove it wild.
It grew gigantic, and it's heart forsook
Any love the mother gave, cravings placed
In rampaging monsterous ways. Appaling
Plans the devil made to sire a hybrid race
Of wicked giant men. But, came it's fall
When God sent watery flood to cover all
The ancient world. Demi-Gods surprise
No more - - - or have you found it otherwise?

Genesis - Chapter 6.

    yet a superb write of impeccable grace by bewitching depiction that swoons the breath to know more, from where it starts the cocept of today`s Recombinant DNA Technology, yet a abberation when abused, wrought ingenious by the imagery, wellpenned,10++++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    Beautiful and powerful. I read this transfixed with foreboding; its logical conclusion was as ominous as one would fear and expect. (Report) Reply

    Fay, you surprised me with this one, interesting and attention grabbing. A thought came to my head 'is this what global warming is all about'. Great write 10 Bob (Report) Reply

    Genisis Renaissance, indeed, Fay....a brilliant interpretation of The Origin of the Nephilim....In fact, tho' King James architected a most comprehensive adaptation...i must confess, that your version is far less abstruse & (do i dare risk a sudden bolt of ethereally delivered lightening, by saying) , a might more intuiging...? ! Solid Penning, young lady!

    A modern reworking of a biblical myth
    a past attempt to explain the past.
    There are so many alternate myths of creation and prehistory who knows what is true
    I enjoyed the read though (Report) Reply

    This is quite an outstanding poem, Fay, one that is inventive yet quite accurately characterizes the general meaning of the sixth chaper of Genesis. You quite deftly
    created a very effective summation of the lesson that chapter speaks about, clothing it in a language most readers could easily understand. Your conclusion of this interesting poem is quite brilliant, especially that final line, which certainly leaves the reader wondering. Carl. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
