that ancient dragon
cunning serpent
epitome of evil
father of lies
the deceiver
our accuser

satan still prowls
“seeking whom he may devour”
whether sinners, saints, saviors

his loyal minions
destroy families
enslave addicts
abuse children
pervert truth
entice fools
incite wars




Linking with dVerse Poets where De Jackson invites us to write a quadrille (44 words) on “dragon” theme…

    I think this dragon is too real really… and it cannot be slain.

    Human monsters frighten me far more than mythical ones, and there are all too many of them.

    Yes, you capture evil here. I like the shift from dragon to serpent.

    Love that foreboding title on this one. And your descriptions are vivid, and perfectly frightening.
