I Saw The Devil Yesterday - Poem by Robert Mestre

I saw the Devil yesterday,
Children dead, their parents slain,
People silenced for what they say,
Leaders applauding sorrow and pain.

Tornados, floods, and hurricanes,
And hatred on every land,
The sky she cries her acid rain,
More money is the main demand.

Holy wars with unholy actions,
Diseases man made set loose,
Drugs to cure non-satisfaction,
Rape, and robbery, child abuse.

Genocide has become a fad,
Prejudice is denied but true,
People are bitter, angry, and sad,
All innocence in through.

I saw the Devil yesterday,
In wide screen a thousand clues,
As I listened to all they say,
On the channel fifteen news.
