Recanted



So funny to recount my various summonings.
Am i a lowly nefarious demon-kin?
Asked to submit on many occasion,
although i'm not sure if my dominant wins...

And it seems every day that i charge in some manner,
yet strangely enough i will never be fodder.
Perhaps i'm a scientist, electric mad hatter,
who holds some opinion of esteem on this matter...

It too strikes as odd how my income avows,
though the outcome or purpose of this life is cowed.
And why tell me why do they say to DIS-guise-
Would you throw off your shroud to be unseen by eyes?

Invisible typical whimsical liars.
Derigible barnacle helium fires...
