A short poem I wrote over a sleepless night. I had a collection of lines and threw them together over a few minutes. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

EVERYONE

The Devil can cite scripture for his purpose!

It can come in any form; man, woman, child or beast,

It has no interest in the deceased,

They are just elements rotting away

and with them our demons can hold no sway,

Every-thing with a brain has got it's own demons,

and it has nothing to do with the Garden of Eden,

It's an inner beast, an animal of insidious rage

married with character that cannot be caged.

RS. GALLAGHER 4-1-13.

Very important concepts packed in a powerful way ! Keep exploring these vital existential realities that lay beneath the surface of our being. Once humans got kicked out of the garden God had to hit the on switch. otherwise no flight or fight, no sex drive, no eat drive and on and on. Problem is man/woman refuses to acknowledge the beast within. They give the devil all the credit; never taking responsibility in the spiritual realm. Keep up the trailblazing.
