With An Image To Fool


Demons don't have to be adorned with horns
They can look as sweet as they choose.
And many do...
Choose.

Demons don't have to masquerade a hiding of their tails,
Sometimes they're in tuxedos too.
And many do...
Wear suits and ties and display manicured nails.

And those who are depicted devils,
Could be angels that surround you...
With a speaking of a truth you refuse,
Because they don't...
Impress you,
With an image to fool.

Demons don't have to be adorned with horns,
They can look as sweet as they choose.
And many do...
Choose.

Demons don't have to masquerade a hiding of their tails,
Sometimes they're in tuxedos too.
And many do...
Wear suits and ties and display manicured nails.

And those who are depicted devils,
Could be angels that surround you...
With a speaking of a truth you refuse,
Because they don't...
Impress you,
With an image to fool.

And demons do...
Want to impress with an image,
Just to fool you.

And demons do...
Want to impress with an image,
Just to prove they can dupe you to fool.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
