the devil’s own

much of what’s endured in life
is meant to strengthen, test, and teach
to forge a heart, a soul, a mind
a character unique to each

divinity has never spared
its lightning rod in this respect
there’s plagues, and floods, and wars, and crime
and other horrors to select

but none such horrors scare me so
as does knowledge you draw breath
the very thought of which seems proof
hell persists preceding death

not a god could be so cruel
cause such suffering in vain
your heartless, soulless, mindless drool
bringing only abject pain

no such deity exists
no theology is known
to create a beast like you
save that you’re the devil’s own
