You know My Name

by Paul Hirst   Sep 21, 2017

It was I who whispered in Pilots ear gave him doubts carpenter fear
And I threw die for His blood stained robe laughed up at Him watched His tears flow

I told Cain go kill him now and licked the fear from his sweaty brow do you think Herod was to blame for the first born dead ha ha no he heard my name

Lovely Lizzy and her chopping axe was down to me we had a pact and that saintly man poor JFK it wasn't Lee Harvey Oswald blew him away

Mr Mao Stalin AH too I whispered hey boys don't just kill a few and for every still born and suicide an Ocean formed from crocodile tears cried

Wars and famine death and pain its all so delicious its just my game and you know the real fun in this I convinced you all I did not exist

    This was a late addition to my fab 3 as I somehow managed to miss it. Luckily one final scroll through before the deadline brought it to light.

    I found this to be quite a break from the norm and it certainly appealed to that little dark bit of my nature.

    I found the use of historic events , (both relatively modern day and biblical) to be incredibly clever and it all just fits together nicely.

    I wonder if anyone else went to their record collection and pulled out sympathy for the devil by the stones after reading it.
