for eternity I've looked upon
injustice in its prevalence
I long to cup the Acheron
and sin to gain benevolence

with Michael's wing beneath my heel
my mouth is death to bigotry
which wrenches closed like screaming steel
to praise the lord of heresy

for retribution's decadence
for the seraphim's righteous denial
in my unyielding vehemence
I'll spit the ash of Sodom's smile

the penalties of lies profound
will reflect against my winter teeth
catholic girls in ashen gowns
will bow beneath my cloven feet

like the bloom of pestilence
like the birth of genocide
my hand demands god's reverence
and snaps the smile of Jesus Christ
Sometimes I want to be a vigilante. If you want something done you have to do it yourself.

Is this written from the perspective of Satan?

No, although I do have pretty deep sympathy for the morning star.

Oh, okay! I just thought it might have been because it seemed to say about having cloven feet and getting God's respect.
This is just more proof that I have much to learn about studying the meanings behind poetry. :) Yet another nice one from you!

Catchy. You have a real gift with words.
I really like the line "my mouth is death to bigotry". Very clever.

Also, I am a follower of Christ. This poem doesn't make me upset or angery or anything; it's emotion... expressing yourself is good. I don't really think He's in a huff over it either =). Just... sorry if one of us was not very nice to you... sometimes our actions aren't always in line with that of the management. :-(
