A VICTORY (encounters) The first a black blob Laying on my chest Interrupting my night’s rest Slight fear arose But these words I chose In the name of Jesus of Nazareth Be gone! Before the next heartbeat It disappeared The second sat on a throne of glory (attempting to imitate the Lord of Lights) I sensed something was not right Yet by him was I fooled A finger touched my lips As I drew too near Next day was I sick Should’ve listened to the fear The third resembled a child Again lying on my chest In form appearing fairly mild But when it smiled (more of a grimace) Pointed razors had it for teeth Words proceeded from its mouth Susie, what are you trying with this book I needed not another single look Again, In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, Be gone! It disappeared Lost in its own fear The last (but not the least) Resembled a grown man (I was prepared though slightly scared) Speaking again did I begin In the name of Jesus of Nazareth Be gone! This one, however, did not run Spoke these words Oh, no, it doesn’t work like that Replying I yelled Oh yes it does In the name of Jesus of Nazareth Be gone! It disappeared. Forms of only black Shades of grey, no color Seeking to incite my terrors, fear The demons reeking, smelling Of darkness, violent destruction This I wish to make absolutely clear Unpleasant creatures were they Yet please listen, stay, They have not the last word All power belongs to the Lord above Christ conquered all such creatures (satan even) On a bloodied cross Destroyed all of evil’s loss As He at last died & in His final sigh Won forever your VICTORY!!
