The Devil is an Insect/
                            One to the Second Power/
Here in the First Galactic Quadrant
This Has been Discovered/From the Unholy Watchtowers of
CyberXenoPhotophobes/ Menacing ...A
Demonic Infestation of Deadly Savage Insects
Cruelly Starved in Hell
and made Ravenously Mad there
now in furious struggle to     Escape into the Light
and Hide/and in perfect humanoid Guise
now      Scattering
quietly into the Dark World   of Form     and Time/
and becoming Ripe    and Fruitftul      and Multiplying..../
And The Devil is an Insect      forever
in Hideous Transformation and
in Hiding
Deep  in His Cocoon of Sickness and Pain
where this Prince of Darkness  is most at Home/and where He Loves to Entertain
and Spread His Miserable Cloak of Darkness
and Accusation and
for All to Enjoy/In the First Power
of Being
which He has Stolen
and is seeking to Copy, Clone, Use and Destroy/And The Devil You Know is a Cruel Insectile Ego/Many Times Over
Now/coming in DeadlySilent to take Residence in Your Mind
with a stinging Afterglow   and Buzzing in
The Fluorescent Black   Rainbow Splatterings
made Cheap and
Easy from a  Dark Hive
of Horrors...

The Devil You Fear     is an Insect
      in the Coming Swarm
of Slaves/....
