WORKING FOR THE DEVIL

Less than twenty-four hours
Until the anniversary
Of when we lost our innocence
In the Land of the Free.

We’ve had our share of tragedies
From Mother Nature and our own
But this terror from a foreign land
Is the worst that we have known.

The sickest part about that day
Was the reasons that they claim
That they were doing the bidding
Carried out in their gods’ name.

Martyrs in their crazy minds
Headed for some promised land
But the Devil is who welcomed them
In the world of the damned.

The worst part about it all
Are the ones who’ll take their place
Who keep Satan alive and well
Within, the human race.
