The Devil’s Mockery

You want to dance with the devil; I see

Find out all the bad things he can be

Have you considered this carefully?

Then make your choice but choose wisely!

 

Wouldst thou place thy handeth on his own chest

Only blacken’d heart lies neath those ribs

Of scorched bone

While vile stench doth reek

From the pores of his own diseas’d flesh

 

Or

Maybe

Symbolic

A visual

Statement

A message

A Picture

That can speak a thousand words of the atrocities

And outrageous brutalities he’s bared witness to

Partaken in

Instigated

Enjoyed

Or

 

A whisper in your ear

Of the secrets that have been seen

Secrets you don’t want others to know

Sshhh, don’t worry he won’t tell

For a drop of blood on parchment

 

Are screaming words enough

For him to get into your mind

Like maggots on rotten meat

Burrowing, feeding on your fear

Turning your subconscious against you

Toward him

 

Have you made your choice yet? No?

Well never mind

After all it’s too late now

I’m quite fond of you

And you should know

You can’t bargain with the devil

 

I think I’ll stick around

Oh I’m sorry, I should have introduced myself

I’m going to take good care of you…

Song’s from the Movies

I love this film. Not only hilarious but it’s sinister twist is brilliant.

My favourite of what’s know as the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, Hot Fuzz is a 2007 comedy action film directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg, Nick Frost and in my eyes an all star cast.

The films crazy opening scenes are introduced by the great song that is Adam Ants ‘Goody Two Shoes’. An appropriate opener describing such a ‘by the book’ character that is Sergeant Nicolas Angle , sorry Angel. I love that bit.

Great song, great movie; enjoy.

Goody Two Shoes

HotFuzzWith the heartbreak openAnt
So much you can’t hide
Put on a little makeup, makeup
Make sure they get your good side, good side

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside

We don’t follow fashion
That would be a joke
You know we’re going to set them, set them
So everyone can take note, take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs, eyeballs
Pretending that you’re Al Green, Al Green

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

No one’s gonna tell me
What’s wrong and what’s right
Or tell me who to eat with, sleep with
Or that I’ve won the big fight, big fight

Look out or they’ll tell you
You’re a “Superstar”
Two weeks and you’re an all-time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

‘Cause I don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

(Repeat)

Trophy – The Mush from the Hill

This one was published on Free Verse Revolution as part of their July theme of ‘Love’. Go check out some of the other great works over there.

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

She was loved once

She once loved

But love has a cruel way 

Of casting aside those that 

Are seen as no more than

Trophies to be presented

Until the trophy becomes

Battered and tarnished

Scratched and bruised

Then it is just discarded

For no one to love

Not even herself

Haiku Challenge…

I do love writing Haiku or at least writing three lines with 5 and 7 and 5 syllables in each line.

So while I’m catching up with my fellow blogging buddies I came across this friendly challenge. Susi over on I Write Her sets a weekly Haiku Challenge with the winners getting some free publicity on her Blog.

The challenge this week is to write a verse interpreting what you see in the picture.

How could I refuse; I hope you enjoy.

Camera’s Delight

She knows how to tease
The camera lens bites down
On sultry picture
