The Greatest Trick. Poem by J.A McManus

The Greatest Trick.

Rating: 4.4

If the greatest trick
That the devil ever played
Was to make the world
Believe the lies from his lips

Then the greatest trick
God ever played was to tell
The whole world it was
Made upon day number six.

Interesting, though I do not believe in 'God' or 'Devil'... I believe in what we are, and not for what we could be. =) Nice poem tho, good job!

What an interesting poem to read, Satan convincing the whole world he does not exist and God convincing the whole world He did create the world in 6 days. This does lead to an interesting debate. Well everyone who reads his or bible, has his or her own interpretation of the bible.

GOD is steadfast and doesn't play tricks. The devil though will through deceptions

This is a great poem that should be complimented for it's simplicity alone, poetry is not thoughtless chatter, and neither is this...very impressive!
