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.
