DEVIL'S DAUGHTER


 

I met a girl, her smile outshone the moonlight,

we danced all night, the waltz and tango drew me;

I walked her home, and hoped to get my spoon right,

then kissed the cherry lips she offered to me.

 

I floated home on air, so sorely smitten

and dreamed of love forever with my baby;

twas like a magic apple I had bitten,

but I cared not for words like why or maybe.

 

We dated several times, I was enraptured,

and knew that I would never love another;

this dainty Cinderella had me captured,

and then she took me home to meet her Mother.

 

My smile was wide, a lamb unto the slaughter

expecting her to welcome me politely;

but as I stood there, arm around her daughter

she raised the carving knife that glinted brightly.

 

I closed my eyes and waited for the curtain,

and wondered if they worked this foul deed often;

my life flashed past, I knew one thing for certain:

these harpies wouldn't bother with a coffin.

 

A Mother/daughter team of blackened evil,

the siren hunts, with carnal interacting;

Medusa waits at home, a female Devil,

then both appease their bloody Satan's pacting!

 

The seconds passed, I wondered why they waited,

were they expecting me to act the gallant?

so all the more their blood lust could be sated,

I sobbed a tear: such diabolic talent.

 

And then her Mother spoke: "Are you awake, dear?"

I opened up my eyes, my heart felt tainted;

"You sit right down and have a piece of cake, hear?"

She cut the chocolate log - that's when I fainted!
