Devil in a Tailcoat
"Yes my Lord," the words roll off my tongue with ease.
In anyone's eyes I am a humble servant wanting to please.
Together we've created an impenetrable shell,
No one would believe when this ends I'll drag you to hell.
Enduring any and all humiliation,
I follow your commands with out protestation.
Together we're rising to the task,
Come now Lord, let's put on our masks.
I'll groom you, I'll guide you, I'll guard you,
But nothing is honorable in what I do.
Yours is the pure soul which must remain,
Something everyone seems too eager to obtain.
Time continues to ebb and flow
Not soon before long my efforts will show.
Watching from the shadows with arrogance and greed,
Not soon before long you'll fill my sinister need.
