devil’s henchmen tie a noose
like a neck-tie it’s always too tight
but looks oh so nice alongside the agony
“i want a new story!”
“what was wrong with that one?”
devil’s henchmen bake a pie
an apple delight that tastes of the stars
a sweet, simple taste.
the dark spawn licks its lips
even laps up the remains on its palms
“this story is creepy.”
devil’s henchmen shut off the machine
Boss Demon: Good work today, fellows.
Workers: Yea, yea…
Chuck: Fruit punch at my place?
Charles: No way, that stuff will kill ya!
Chuck: You worry too much.
Charles: You don’t worry enough!
Chuck: You let me worry about that!
Boss Demon: Hey! You two, get!
Chuck/Charles: Yea, yea…
devil’s henchmen fly a kite.
devil’s henchmen get dressed for the wedding.
“what is it you want to hear?”
devil’s henchmen climb the ladder to the portal.
Sam: You first.
Carl: Why me?
Sam: Because i’m older.
Carl: No you’re not.
Sam: Just go.
Carl steps through the portal and is amazed…
“what does he see!?”
“i’ll tell you, just hold on.”
Sam: Carl, Carl what do you see?
Carl: Come in here. It’s AMAZING!!
They both stare down at the sky.
Sam: Are we flying?
Carl: I don’t know. It feels like there is a floor under my feet.
Carl: You don’t think we’re in…
Sam: The boss won’t be happy if he finds out…
Carl: Maybe he won’t.
– Silence –
Carl: Sam? Sam?
