Demon Song - Poem by Hm. Nes

The demon song repeats
Like a record skipping
And plays the same disjointed phrase
Over and over and over again
Only the loudest noises
Demanding to be heard:
Aggravated motorists honking
Alarms, Sirens, Whistles, Bells
Spouses shouting
Kids shouting
Neighbors shouting
Teachers shouting
Politicians
Only the noisiest noises
Can dispel the demon song
Silence is risky
A quiet place will never do
For there the demon song is deafening
Demanding to be heard
