Snakes & Sinners...



I have walked with wolves

And slept with snakes

Been touched by things

From beyond the grave

I have dined with devils

And danced with thieves

I have watched the sly progress

Of death and disease

I have heard the banshees

Wail in the night

And felt the earth tremble

Through a demons stride

I have sat amongst sinners

And the vilest of villains

Yet I would rather all of these

Than suffer a politician
