The Demon in Me

The demon in me

Makes you feel like you are along for the ride

When in fact

You are a new boy on the renter schedule

Trying to be

Them as to wants to be wended on

The road to Absolom and the ghetto.  I will

Be then and there the One who isn’t going

But who isn’t coming neither

As it is about to fall and that makes

You a little cunning about the way

You ask for the mark of the dog

On your eyes and ears.

Bark and you shall find

That it takes a lot of time to make it to the

End of the mile that you have started oh so long

Ago.  I will be the then and the there but not the why.
