When the Devil Reigns

Updated on June 26, 2017


In these times when a Devil seems king

His days are numbered still

His grinning face big head out of place

not stronger than our own will


With his horned top trying to feed us slop

waiting for his greatest fall

Dressing in finery and visiting the winery

the worst day for him his ball


Proceeding to beguile wearing a crooked smile

nasty no matter what he does

Dirty tricks amid the flicks long as a country mile

he continues to be what he was


Every word he mutters causes his stutters

Giving our day a big lift

To his dismay does to matter what you say

setting his soul so adrift


Befriending of this enemy, suspicious at least

matters of greatest concern

Taking from the poorest to benefit the richest

Makes him more likely to burn


One day so very soon, in a late afternoon

His reign shall come to a halt

His days will be over lost in the clover

Blaming everyone but is his fault

Better days will come so soon
Better days will come so soon


The Lord God rules this earth we share

no one may call it his domain

The wrath of the creator greatest of all

then upon his head to reign


The angels shall trumpet, voices then to ring

the world's people all shall sing

The beast is now gone, what he did all wrong

Now a peace to the earth shall bring

      Powerful description here, whonu. That nasty demon tries, but he can't win it all.

      Most inspirational We must never lose our faith so that along with the Lord and the angels we can triumph over evil.

      Indeed, the devil's days are numbered. Good will have the final victory! Though it is indescribably difficult, at times, we must stand strong. I, myself, cannot do so alone, but I count on The Lord to keep me standing strong. Excellent poem you have here; it is encouraging!

      Thank you!

      It is true. It seems like the Devil has more power controlling these people to do evil. But like you said, his days are numbered. I really enjoyed this poem. We need to be aware and stay strong and continue to do God's work on this earth. It seems like more and more hate and violence reign out. We need to bring back peace and love.
