One Single Impression: Wings


I Would ...

if I had the wings of hades
I would pester people to death
making life look so very bad
aberrant be the very best

if I wore horned red devil skin
young sex alluring be such fun
love makes it right I'd tell the youth
protection needed not this once

if I were knight of Lucifer
all sin and bad appealing be
numb their souls every way I knew
saying knowledge will make you free

if I were the devil no way
ever I'd hang my head in shame
I'd flap those wings in boastful pride
end matters most deceit's my game

the devil runs to and fro flee from him

A Happy New Year to you!! Interesting poem, had a laugh with that horned red devil skin!
Methinks you are the poetical version of P.G.Wodehouse.. :)

Ah that trickster, dancing before us and tempting us away from our better judgment. Must be careful!

I don't know why I am thinking of Flip Wilson! "The devil made me do it". I guess the devil does tempt us to do many things. Oh whow is me.

Wow! You outdid yourself this time, Jim. Isn't it interesting that the tension of this aspect of reality is so often never addressed! Well done.

You've got it! That's what it is! Clever piece and a reminder with a grin.

... and here I was focused on other 'wings' when I published my response to this prompt. Thanks for the warning ... I'll be on the look out!
Hugs and blessings,

A very interesting interpretation of the prompt, Jim. A whole other side of you is revealed!

Quite imaginative- one of your best
Particularly like these lines

"pester people to death" (since you speak of hades in the previous line)
"2nd verse is every parent's nightmare "protection needed NOT this once- oh yes, you "horned red devil skin"- very alluring and feisty you are

"Numb their sould every way I knew...Knowledge make you free"
