Let Me Avenge Satan

Let me avenge Satan,
For tempting me all life;
He is the big Liar,
Who brought me all my strife.

Let me avenge Satan,
For accusing mankind;
He gives false promises,
And confuses each mind.

Let me avenge Satan,
For misleading all souls;
His craftiness is clear,
And wily are his roles.

Let me avenge Satan,
For giving me my woes;
He’s the fallen angel,
The Chief among my foes.

Let me avenge Satan,
For goading me to sin;
He‘s the source of evil,
Against whom I must win.

Let me avenge Satan,
For giving bad advice;
He is my betrayer,
Who lures all into vice.

Let me avenge Satan,
For setting snares for me;
He waits to ambush me
In my iniquity.

Let me avenge Satan,
For making my eyes dim;
And raising doubts in me,
And turning my life grim.

Let me avenge Satan,
For causing wars on earth;
And spreading hatred great,
Amongst siblings since birth.

Let me avenge Satan,
For telling just untruth; ;
And tempting Eve to eat,
The God-forbidden fruit.

Let me avenge Satan,
For goading Cain to kill
His brother dear Abel,
And keeping not God’s will.

Let me avenge Satan.
For tempting Lord Jesus,
After forty-days’ fast,
And thwarting mankind’s bliss.

Let me avenge Satan,
For taking souls to hell,
God made for all devils,
And angels all who fell.

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
