The devil and his achievement

Posted to Action Poetry




you say the devil got away,
the house clear and decent

but what about you?
what about us?
Can this continue...
even for a single
minute...

The devil got his way,
and ran when appropriate
leaving desolation
frustration behind

It is our end,
we have to part
there is no mutual heaven
on our path...
only a mutual hell
