Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)

Evil passed down through the aeons
Every lasting and so ever strong,
Even the bravest cannot resist it
As it continues ever on and on.

Demon princes conjuring monsters
To send up to terrorise the Earth,
Never taking any living prisoners
Only their souls have any evil worth.

Everliving fiends come up to haunt us
Tormenting us throughout the night,
Chasing, teasing, finally killing
Perpetrating evil until broad daylight.

The Devil sends up horrors to taunt us
Prehistoric creatures from a distant past,
Chasing down their intended victims
To engage in a bloody repast.

Evil passed down through the ages
Abominations too foul for belief,
Misshapen atrocities stalking us
Hunting and devouring without relief.

Leviathans from the Jurassic era
Winged reptiles from another clime,
Never-ending, and never dying
Brought down to ravish in our time.

Arachnids a full kilometre tall
Seeming to reach right up to the sky,
Everlasting evil sent up by Satan
To ensure the human race will die.
