Speak of the Devil

by Videl Sky

Ole Lucifer slumbers down in Inferno,
Brimstone composing his cage.
You feel how he yearns to escape this burrow?
Can you not feel his rage?
Though he sleeps, he’s never at rest,
He seeks to corrupt your unconscious mind -
If you can’t withstand this taxing test
You’ll find your fate forever his, confined.
You don’t believe these tales? That’s fine!
Let us together scorn the Gods!
Yes, yes! – Put your soul on the line!
Are you ready to bet on the odds?
Speak of the Devil! Invite me him in!
This game of chance you’ll surely not win.
