Death - Poem by Shelby Bellows
You look into his eyes,
And you see through his disguise.
He looks into your eyes,
And he tells you all his lies.
Don't let him trick you in his games,
For he cheats with demons from his flames.
Death and cruelty are his names.
Angels from heaven,
Spite the unforgiven.
God hath banned you,
From what isn't true.
Alcohol, drugs, lust, and money,
All of these are his honey.
Feeding from our misery,
Fueling his false dignity.
Trying to prove his righteousness,
Only showing his wickedness.
