The Devil You Say

The Devil You Say

A Chapter by Dave Brown


Devil PNG
When I was to interview the Devil

He arrived in a lovely Rolls Royce 

Saying of all liquid refreshment

Blood was his very first choice


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 with their gross beaks, they sticked em’


His blood tendency seemed a tad gross

Otherwise, he seemed a decent type 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, overcome by his horrible breath  

As his yellow fangs sliced into my neck


I could feel him slurping my blood

Which, I really wished he wouldn’t do

But, slowly fading to black, I realized

This would be my last interview

You can't say you weren't warned. Plenty of clues before you got close and comfortable.. I mean anyone who drinks to excess would worry me and this chap was mighty well as ugly. A lesson I think to your readers, that there are unsavouries out there.

I think Big D's announcement of his favorite drink should have been a warning sign. Those green eyes should have cinched. You Uber drivers are too eager for a fare.

I'm not so sure you are taking all this seriously enough
This is a grand sustained effort in rhyme & rhythm! I felt myself growing more & more jealous, as your poem took its leisurely time, all with well-executed R&R -- distractingly so, you could say. You probably notice I hardly ever write a poem over 5 stanzas becuz that's when all my R&R ideas go bust. I have the utmost regard for your staying power. You must have some powerful horses under your hood (((HUGS)))
