Demon

short poetry, God, felony, criminals, death, purgatory

You would walk into a quiet house,
In a quiet neighbourhood and,
Take a young girl,

Into the woods,
And rape her,
Leaving a father disfigured,

You would,
Take a husband,
In the middle of the night,

And break his legs,
And electrocute him,
Because he will not salute your
Blown up image,

You would,
Empty bank accounts,
Nurtured for years,

By elderly couples who,
Just want rest,
And something leftover for grandchildren,

You would dismantle life this way,
And bear no burden?

I tell you,

There were angels in the courtroom,
And in the playground,
And on the plane,

But I was not one of them.

I will find you and,
Eat you up.

Attorney General

I am your witness in sharp shoes, Distracted by red women,

Your special witness,
Your lawyer,

Advertised as free in this tough, brutal world.

I handle accidents, divorce court, disability the works and,
Sharp words will be necessary, believe me, so

Call.
Call me now.

On the number flashing at the bottom of the screen.
