Devil Rhymes #1
By Alexandra Seidel

The devil, devil spoke to me, spoke to me, spoke to me
The devil, devil spoke to me ALL Sunday morning!

Hush you sinners, rabble, pigs, I'll dye you a scarlet Styx!
These crooked teeth, the crooked skin, your crooked smile--
Come let me in!

And fill your hands with berries sweet, berries sweet berries sweet
ALL Sunday morning!

(In the garden--quite contrary--
where DID that magpie go??)
