Treasure Island

Joseph D. Smith

(May 12th,1988 / Glasgow, KY, USA)

The Evil Child Who Was Never Born

Once upon an ungodly night,
God appeared to a disturbed young child,
Who hated his mother.
He would do anything to be rid of her,
So God had a proposition;

'I will send you back in time
to the time she was born,
All you have to do is catch her alone,
And kill her...'

The little boy loved the idea,
So he listened further;

'The best way to do it
is to smother her with her pillow.
That's all there is to it! '

God sent him back to her birth,
Right when she was alone...
This demon-child
could barely hold back his excitement,
He jerked her pillow right from
under her and done this vile deed!
In an instant she was dead...

This evil little bastard faded from existence,
Till this day he was never born...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

As a word of caution, this is a very disturbing tale, it was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's 'Never Bet The Devil Your Head'. I will never condone killing, and I love my mother, I would never want to kill her, I've never dreamed of it. I also don't really believe God would do such a thing, it has a hidden meaning about the demiurge, an evil being disguised as God.
