The Interview

The Interview

A Chapter by Dave Brown



When I was to interview the Devil

He arrived in a Rolls Royce type of thing

Pleasantly identified himself as Lucifer

Informing that blood made his heart sing


While the black night burned darkly

His eyes flashed a sickly bright green

I knew that after this interview concluded

I’d need many cups of caffeine


Black Ravens had accompanied him

Their brown eyes pierced the night

Tho’ lazily lounging on the finest of leather

They were poised to insight fearsome fright


His fangs reflected the Moon’s light

An evil grin spread cross his face

On his mind he had but one thought

Finding a victim to embrace


He explained to me the formalities

Of how to capture a clueless victim

He would unleash all his black Ravens

And on that sorry victim, he sick’d em’


His blood tendency seemed a tad gross

Otherwise he seemed a decent enough fellow

But the thing that turned me right off

Terrible breath and teeth a ghastly yellow


I quickly concluded the interview

Turning away, I felt a near wreck

Then, smelled his horrible breath beside

As his yellow fangs sliced into my neck


I could feel him slurping my blood

Which, I wished he wouldn’t do

And as I slowly faded to black

I realized

This would be my last interview

A wonderful Halloween offering. The moon shines pale on those dark Ravens and the smell of sulfur comes off your words. An interview with old hickory could only end one way. Nice write.

One interview too many!
Tippy-top of the morning, as far as rhyme, rhythm, & imagination. You've been killing it, as far as coming up with such a variety of spooky storylines this month. There was no contest that I know of, but you've won the Halloween writing prize this season! As for this particular poem, it reminds me of an article I read about how political interviews this year are more likely to end up with the interviewee telling off the interviewer & stomping out of the interview. Everyone's snarly by now & they all deserve some fangs in the throat, if they can't take the tough questions! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
