An Oath to Satan



An Oath to Satan

Swear an oath to Satan
Guaranteed inclusion in the notorious one percent
A life-time of fame and fortune for your one soul
A blood oath will deliver all that you seek
A capstone will forever shine bright above your head
Pentagram tattoo pledges your corpulent allegiance
But be forewarned
The puppet-master’s strings are always cautionary brittle
Invisible shackles begin their everlasting clatter
Every phobia now a life-time’s companion
The hallucinogen of success readies you for the great fall
Hell’s fire warming your tender soles
The mirror reflecting what is to become an everlasting horror
Wrinkles quicken their pace
All around you the lights begin their flicker
Shadows lurk, impatiently waiting
In all this, is there nothing that reminds of “You”

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
