The Devil’s Doin’

by Jim Rapp

There is a story told
of Satan standing in the cold
weeping, so the story goes,
because, alas, he knows,
that humans love to blame him
for things that are their sins.

But I’m convinced that
he’s most certainly the rat
who invented politics.
When he threw his hissy-fit,
wasn’t that a political rebellion?
Now, all our political hellions

perpetuate his original sin –
pride and arrogance barging in –
speaking in heaven’s name,
claiming heaven’s fame.
Old Nick chuckles at our stewin’
as we replicate the Devil’s doin’.
