The End of an Angel

Lucifer, “Lord of Light,” the
archangel Michael’s sandalled
foot is for your neck—your
curses you will inherit, vile snake,
my contempt for you, worm,
if it were Christlike I would spit
at thee, dead tempter, fallen
angel, the earth is Christ’s—
yours is the pit, and utter darkness
forever—farewell, tormentor,
empty cloud, in Jesus’ name I
rebuke thee; your ploys were my
Father’s plan, your Kingdom keel,
His Kingdom come, get ready
for the bonfire, you and your top-
heavy outfit—set, sad Venus, vale!
