Of Satan's Verse

“A Heaven of Hell

And a Hell of Heaven”,

Were the words of Satan

A lie hidden beautifully

Being of such verse

A kind friend,

A gentle companion,

Or tyrant?

Beauty, gentility, and Kindness

Could all be lies in the end?

Or am I again being mislead?

Shadows conquer any tranquility

And chide answers—Answer Masques

              Heaven, Hell

              Hell, Heaven

Sensory realms made opposite

By signs and cycle

Lord, help me with these tales

The hellish and Heavenly

How can I find the eternal truth

On earth so varied

And minds blessedly and horribly distinct

Or is my mind even in sync?
