No One To Blame

JUDITH MEADE 1962 (iNDIANAPOLIS)



Angels that are flying close to the ground, are tempted by Satan they are looking around
Satan laughs and laughs with delight, he knows he will catch a couple tonight.
He will draw them in like bees are to honey, it is so easy its' not funny
They will flock to him like a moth to a flame, he knows it well, Satan knows the game.
Satan lures the Angels down to the pit, the Angels will have a perfect place to sit.
They look around and see Angels in swings, hung by skulls and many evil things.
A wave of his hand and a circle of fire begins, how stupid they are , they shouldn't of gave in .
These angels sit in a ring of fire with their wings tied up with the devil's wire.
Their beautiful wings that was once pure white are now gray with ash from the fire so bright.
The Angels heads are bowed low with shame, knowing that they have no one to blame.

    Satan may be an old "man" but he is still controlling this world as he is very subtle in his approach ! Look at the COVID mess !

    Satan still rules the world and is much alive but knows his end is near.
    Resist the devil and he will flee from you ! Fill your mind with God's thoughts and the things of this world will grow strangely dim !

    Interesting poem, nonetheless, the Evil One knows that he is born to lose against God's might.

    Nicely written. I find it interesting you give satan so much power. I see him as a tired old man with the same old tricks and the angels as bright, clever and strong :) they know how to outwit him these days :)
