Devil’s Due

He stood upon the pulpit
glaring down at the pews
sinners
no repentence
at his door.
His voice was thunderous
calling down doom
destruction
shouting that God would  kill them all
a grevious flood
was going to abound.
The parishioners stared at him
eyes glazed with fear
glances darting about
looking for the demons behind every door.
raucous call like a crow
blazing eyes
today’s takings would be good
it always was
when he gave the devil his due.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
