He’s a faint, dystrophic rival
dressed in blankets knit of epithets
and euphemistic drivel
but his costume won’t protect him from
the winds that herald otherness
the swift, avenging providence
that facilitates the slaughter
of sadistic, mulish egotists
Old Nick’s guilty as sin

Hell will seep into his coffin
It will suck him from the boneyard
It will leave his old throne empty
in its gaudy, gold encasement
but it won’t allow his legacy
to survive his earthly traces
As he sinks into oblivion
it’ll seem as though he’d never been at all
Old Nick’s guilty as sin
