HUMOUR. FANTASY. NOT HEMINGWAY...

The Bell Tolls

 

The Maid's

Bell tolls

Like lightning,

Across

The old

Wooden floor

Boards,

By

The gothic

Subway,

Into

The chamber

Of thunder

Black and

Burning lamps,

Through which

Mirrored reflections

Troop,

Like an

Invading legion

Of New

Testament demons...

The New Testament demons hit harder than those lame Old Testament demons which contradict everything I say to manipulate people into adopting religious views… ahem… show people the light of God. *clears throat*
