THE DEVIL

His appearance, very decisive

Full of hostility, very much a fiend

Gospels his kingdom but not his kingdom

First day at work a bombshell is thrown

Spits venom just like a dragon

Growls like a tiger looking for a prey.

Power drunken, position abused

Full of pride, intoxicated by post

Pretends to be friendly but never a friend

A cheat in all he does

Shows no mercy, a heartless being

Devour is his delight

An egoist at all level

A tyrant ruler who never cares

An animal in a human form

Or rather the devil that wears a human skin.
