misguided ...

On a lazy noon when there is no riddle and no test
Satan decides to indulge in siesta and it is a much needed rest.

Apathy, terror and hate among mankind has grown dense
his revenge is complete, now there's nothing to worry or tense.

With increasing rate men are vomiting filth on Earth's bed
God seems helpless and humanity is almost dead.

Then comes Satan's follower with fear and much apprehension
rushing and faltering, his forehead beaded with perspiration.

Something terrible has happened on Earth, says he
a man is said to have found the ultimate truth and peace, you see!

Up rises Satan, hails colleagues with a cheerful greeting
in sincere faith he calls for an urgent meeting.

Followers gather in swarms, doubt has sabotaged their calm
surprise on each face, questioning how the leader appears to have no qualm!

Then speaks the lord of serpents, his thunder voice trembling in vibration
"not to fear" says he, "for, that man, now, would create his own separate religion.

In his struggle to establish his personal cult and clan for the youth
he will successfully drive away all, even farther from the supreme Truth.

Hence, we can rest assured and be at ease
as mankind will remain misguided, their conflict will not cease".

Nice Celest. Nothing moves the devil more than one who will not depart the Way.

Be not deceived, Wormwood, our cause is never more in jeopardy than when a human, no longer desiring but still intending to do our Enemy's (God's) will, looks round upon a universe in which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.
