What's Your Excuse


Blackness moved up
Without a warning
Nor a hint

Not to my face
But to my back it came

Plunging me
Into the utter
Depths of despair

Into a nightmare of fear and
Terror I had never thought possible

Changing me
Making me
The disciple of Satan
The Devil himself

What's your excuse

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
