the devil drives a big black caddilac

Avatar_-_logoby dubbleaa04 Sep 2013

the devil lives in the desert
he drives a big black cadillac
covered in the ash of sinners
driving like wildfire down route 66
one arm hanging out the window
fingers cutting through strong arid wind
he picks his teeth with shards of chicken bones
never mind the ram skull strapped to the grill
as he crushes the gravel in with his reptile boots
he’ll wink and give a sparkling grin
and say, “ howdy ma’am” and “please” and “thank you”
he’ll invite you to sin
and say, “it’s just a kiss”
but isn’t that how it always begins?
