Tanka | Angel & Devil

Angel & Devil

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

look Angel walking
no wings that one can see
chain attired neck
school satchel with his name
little Devil yep  that’s me
~~~~
from hell they do call
heed not tis not help they want
there fallen Angels
the Devil  their guardian
beware or lose your soul
~~~~
see that Angel walk
the Devil took its wings
attending church
singing gospel praying
pleading for forgiveness
~~~~
the little flower
the Devil in disguise
berries so tempting
its Angel look belies
toxicity that takes lives
~~~~
my Angel my love
crying tears of deception
crocodiles abound
Devils chosen warriors
devoted to their kind
~~~~
imps and fairies
having devilish fun
gnomes fishing the pond
fish soles beware the bait
the catch the Angels cook
~~~~
oh the struggle
the devilish words destroyed
my angelic thoughts
to go out on a tangent
likely paths to achievement
