Devil takes a selfie




Cold Creamed

Blinded by sunbeam

Devil knows lots of ways

Sneak in

Trick…and treat

Dope fiend

Scope scene

Children lean

Ready to do

Devil’s dream

Dime or a quarter

Corner nymphs

Don’t care

Just give them the money

So they can walk home

And not be scared

Fiend and Fiendly


Knows his tricks

Sees the fear in the eyes

Of the young and the lonely

Homeless on streets so pretty

Devil steps in fining those

Whose only wish

Is to feed the hungry

What’s up next?

Are we supposed to know?

Has going viral

Infected us all?

I have heard it said

Once it is out there

It is out there

So, I am going to build me

A “yellow submarine”

Slip quietly

Under the sea

Where craft have tried

But never been

Trick the devil

Into seeing his own selfie

      Glad to be back. Just read your auto-bio...Loved it! You are awesome! Not many can make it to the 30 year mark in education. You should be very proud of that accomplishment.

      Hey Suzette,

      I am MISSING YOU! I am MISSING all of my HP FAMILY.

      Hoping my Yellow Submarine will surface soon.

      You always make me smile and your encouragement is so appreciated.

      Your seat is reserved.


      That the Devil scares himself is the idea. Your seat is reserved.


      You are so wonderful! I appreciate your ongoing support. Your seat is reserved.


      There is always room for you and yours.


      Greetings. Thanks for responding.

      To All,

      Thanks for not forgetting me when I must be away from my beloved HP. I will be by soon to catch up on all of your hubs. Here is hoping for a wonderful NEW YEAR.

      ALL MY LOVE,

      You tube is full of his selfies. This poem is a true reflection of him being a manslayer

      As written Reference Bible Joh 8:44 YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, andYOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a ( (manslayer )when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie].

      We are the manslayers victims , soon many will see ! People can learn more. But there is hope for many when our Heavenly Father comes to our rescue.

      That was simply amazing Kim. I know the devil is like that but it was a really good poem. I like fish, can I join you in your sub? I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      Simply a wonderful poem. I'd love a ride on the Yellow Submarine. Personally I would hope that the Devil would get scared to death by his own horrible selfie.

      I’ll take a seat on that yellow submarine, Kim. “Going viral,” bests describe how the devil has selfied his influences into life; sadly, with growling alacrity. Bill is right in that you have a unique voice that we all admire and enjoy.

      Will have to check out "Imagine Dragons." Thanks for calling me soulful. I wish I could say the creative juices are flowing--more like dripping from time to time. Smiles.

      Many Blessings,

      "When the days are cold

      And the cards all fold

      And the saints we see

      Are all made of gold" ~ Imagine Dragons

      Only a soulful writer like you could exquisitely pen thoughts the way you do it. I like your chosen title.

      Very creative! You keep that juices flowing. Mine is quite rusty these days. Lol! :)

      Love from the sky~

      You sure can join me. Smiles.


      Don't think it will matter the color of the sub for when the Devil sees himself reflecting the water, his own selfie will scare him away.


      We sure can when the devil sees his own selfie.


      I love the "catch me if you can." Thank you for enjoying the devil selfie idea.

      Blessings to all and thanks for the votes and support,

      Kim, once again, you're simply sublime! Wouldn't it be nice to sail the sea in our very own 'yellow submarine' stick two fingers up at the evil one, catch me if you can. The devil taking a selfie, priceless. :)

      Can we really escape from the devil's stuff? Off course, we can! :-) I like the idea of the yellow submarine in your poem.

      Voted up plus other descriptions.

      Have a good day, Kim!

      Awesome, girl! You creativity and brilliant mind shine here. Yes, let's all live in a yellow submarine ... That devil most likely hates yellow being it is a happy color.

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      Very unique and wonderful poetry Kim. Can I join you in the yellow submarine, maybe check out the octopus's garden and try to escape that damn devil.

      ocfireflies 3 years ago from North Carolina


      I will take any and all. Thanks for getting it.


      I appreciate you, too. Thanks for calling the piece "very creative."

      Just seems like viral has taken on a whole new level. I suspect we would all like to have a yellow submarine where the closest the devil or bad stuff can't reach us is in the deep blue sea. We think about going into space, but it seems we forget about the vastness below us. Thanks for reading.

      I love Yellow Submarine. Very sublime poem, Kim. Can we ever hide from the devil? He is all around us as you point out. Another awesome poem.
