The Day The Devil Had Enough! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Oh, no, he's sitting down again, with pen and paper, too.
He likes to do that now and then… It's ALL he wants to do!
Oh, no, a title's come to mind! He's started straight away…
He's even got it underlined! Oi vey, oi vey, oi vey!

Oh, no, he's off, no stopping now! The housework's never done.
But there's no need to ask me how… I know, he's having fun!
Oh, no, he's on the second verse! He's got that crinkly smile…
The one that almost makes me curse! He'll be a long, long while…

Oh, no, he's staring at the page! That's more bad news for me…
He's paused now in the praying stage! God's helping him for free!
Oh, no, he's got his Bible out! He's checking line-by-line…
He's overcoming every doubt! Well, he's no friend of mine!

Oh, no, his writing's so sublime! He's such a clever dick!
If I stay here I'm wasting time… He really makes me sick!
Oh, no, this guy's a writing pro! His heart's got too much love…
I'll find some other so-and-so… For now, I've had enough!
