The Devils Den

by William Gonzalez
(Harvard Illinois United States)

We've dug a hole called a trench,
Humanity is gone, replaced with stench.

The Devil's busy collecting souls,
from evil doers filled with bullet holes.

The gates of hell are open wide,
As the reapers sickle swings with stride.

The fields where hero's kill and the weaker die.
Puppets controlled by a great big lie.

Men are measured in sweat and blood,
The dead are adorned with metals and mud.

Brainwashed men blinded by lies,
Killing for Satan in a human disguise.

This is what happens when you stray from God's path.
It's proceeded by death, sin and wrath.

Truth told by the tongue of a liar, fate bent and destiny sold,
the stupid brave mortals bold.

Face hell's gate and run in fear,
feel the evil lurking here.

Broken minds and soulless beasts,
on the faithless they so shall feast.

For a useless warning and a shattered rule,
to the trespassers the death is cruel.

A worthless life and a sinner's blade,
time and again this game is played.

Evil doers, monsters and men,
welcome to the devils den.

I thought it was very illustrative and I see it every time I read the news or watch it on t.v. There is a time and place to use that illustration. Tho I did not live back in early 1900"s I believe it was given out for the lost souls to wake up. Jesus spoke more about hell while He was with us. I guess what I'm saying is you can be open enough with sensitivity by letting God's Holy Spirit be the format. I believe God will use what is needed.
