Crown Of Barbed Wire

Crown Of Barbed Wire

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

Mess with halo

You’ll get the horns,

Cause the devil can make

Hell feel like home.

For heaven’s sake

An angel will never last

If the pearly gates

Are turned into a rusted cage,

Wings can only spread so far

Before they get caught

In a barbed wire fence

Mage from the devil’s tail,

Turning doves into pigeons.

It is a good thing
The fight behind the veil aptly described I think.

"If the pearly gates
Are turned into a rusted cage,"

What a nice, logical turning point! The transformation from goodness to evil does not seem abrupt at all.

I also like how this poem was posted one day after Valentine's Day, a day full of sweetness and happiness; it's very ironic to me :P

Never thought about what day I posted it. Thank you.
Oh yes...how can angels remain angels if they are not treated so gently, so lovingly...? Love you for this great message Dale ❤

You are right dear Divya.
i'm feeling a bit of this poem right now...a certain devil...making it feel like hell right now...
the halo is fake----the lips seem to reveal one lie after another.
scary.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
