Acrostic: Growing Old


Groaning grappling facing
Reality that's what
Old people do
When daily facing
Insidious incessant pain
Neck shoulders legs
Groin belly feet

Old before your
Life is ready
Do or die

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
