The Devil is a DJ



Published in Monsters



Monsters contains the short story series Demons, Harlots and Crones, which follows two generations of the Demeere family and its legacy of spite and envy. Included in the series is Demon in High Socks; Holler it out with Lemonade; the Old Lady, Her Plymouth, and Cockroaches; Sex in a Pan; and the Fire Crone and Stone Harlot. Also within Monster’s pages are fifty-odd poems exploring the darker side of human nature and its undeniable conclusion. Two Orphan Sparrows, the Devil is a DJ, the Last Striptease, Beware of Librarians Promising Freedom and many more titles are found within. Ultimately monster asks the reader to look at the darkness found within herself and by facing it, perchance move beyond.

This one gave me goosebumps all the way. Probably one of my favourites I have ever read of yours. I like the angle, making war and the death of soldiers of the devil's making, and humanity complicit. An indictment of the act and not the players. Very wonderful imagery.

Thank you, Megha.
Have an image of a politician, standing before a large crowd, in a rural setting, whipping up the people, to enlist, in the fight, against the Germans, Austro-Hungarians and the Ottomans, during WWI. Who have been replaced by the DJs, of today, preaching their message of hate and violence, through their music selection.

Sadly, people want to believe the lie, when the truth is, a complicated thing, requiring one, to stop and think about their action, before engaging in them. For thinking, is a painful thing, they want to avoid. Thank you, for sharing this thought provoking poem.

Your welcome, Pryde.
This brought back my thoughts as I watched Homeland last night. Who's idea of right is right and does this then give us justification for killing. You a very thought provoking writer.

I listened to this on youtube and it has an unerving quality to it. Seems we are complicit if we stand by or join him in his quest. Loved your reading of it!

Religion can lead the ego-bound astray readily … that is for sure.

I get a lot of different things from this beautiful collage of poetry you have created. I hear the devil beating drums, calling on uncertain souls to dance and then sin of course. I hear that distant sound of our primeval past and all the fears of our ancestors. You have brought some strong images to mind.

Very well penned. I love the imagery you provide and the sense of evil being overlooked due to its alluring attraction. Love the creativity with this one. Well done.
