Ultimate Hubris

Michael Peach

When foolish men abjure belief in sin
And in "The Devil" who has managed "Hell",
The evil they have cast upon that "jinn"
Without their ken returns within to dwell.

And thus, because they "gods" believe they be
(For never doubt such minds their share of good),
That "Satan" they’ve become they fail to see
When do they things which only "he" once would.
