The Folly of Evil: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


They tell us there is only love and fear

all other emotions stemming from them

so every story about evil is coming clear

with just another concept from fear to stem.

Love has been glorified countless ways

no surprise over fear not falling behind

evil enjoying flip-side of amorous blaze

morbid imagination polluting the mind.

Superstition is merely feeding on fear

and dupes the folks with needless worry

a boogie-man for grownups spoiling cheer

with another pretty naive and illogical story.

Every emotion seeks its outer expression

oftentimes we don't need an outside cue

just like loving heart finds its obsession

fearful one finds reasons to feel blue.

We humans are makers of anything unholy

as natural arrogance may be surfacing up

driving us so insane with this evil folly

adding to all other mental crap.
