Just how inviting is evil?

The unaltered face

Beneath the skin

One cannot displace

It lies within


Invites the owner

To an iced hellraiser

Where the donor

Offers an appraisal


For deeds ill done

And praises the frailty

That allowed no one

To escape mortality


Welcome the puppeteer

Who describes the puppet

As mighty under veneer

But too weak to set


Free because we do

What we desire

And once we’re through

Who puts out the fire?


The mover and shaker

Of magnitude 8 events

Makes us one of the makers

Then pretends to circumvent


Ready to be visible

But hiding in leech location

Invites one to be invincible

How seductive is salvation?
