The Devil And An Angel In A Coffee Shop
Author: Vampyr Tears


What did you see?
A rise in crime, death, destruction and hate.
Why won't he stop it?
He doesn't care. He's turned his back.
Well then, I don't want to do my job either.
You must, it keeps everything balanced.
Does it look like things are balanced now?
Times are rought...I know, but...
But what? I'm tired of this. I don't enjoy watching people suffer, despite what they think.
He'll be mad you know.
Then I guess I'll be struck down.
Or no one will notice.
Join me then.
Ah, what a proposal. Me, join you? And do what?
Is there anything left to do?
You don't think we can just 'quit' and live a normal life do you?
No, I guess your right.
It's getting late.
Same time tomorrow?

------- Author's Notes -------

I'm not a religious person, but I somehow got the idea of the Devil and an angel sitting in a coffee shop having a conversation. I don't mean to offend anyone. The Devil begins talking...

I thought this rather funny! By the way, did they have capacuccino, or Maxwell coffee? This poem was interesting! One thing about the devil, he is rather slick in persuading the innocent, good doers to join him....
Nice conversation, capturing the tone, as if the devil and angel are talking!!! LOL! BRILLIANT!Smiles, Meri

I think the angel was having a nice simple cup of java while the devil may have been tasting something more exotic. Some far out blend of coffee. :) Thank you for your lovely comment Meri. I enjoy reading them.
