If you take a drink, I’m sweet to taste

If you decide to swallow, I’m juicer in haste

I’ll infuse you with much satisfaction

suppressing your quench with many distractions


I come in many disguises, the populate cant see

I immerge in beauty, within I reek miserably

I read the human mind, so simply, I decree

They never fail me, in summing up their destiny


Excitingly, I appear as a lamb, gentle and meek

To them whom don’t discern, a wolf to my prey, I seek

I offer many delights, many a rewards

And mockingly laugh at such foolish accord


How daring I am to the unsuspected

How audacious I roam, undetected

Swiftly stinging to mute the light

Sardonically comforting those left in fright


Despicable hearts I long to snare

As they cup on my darkness, my vile lair

Honey they taste, yet once inside, I turn sour

Too late for those whom finally realise their hour


But alas, Im black, don’t expose me to White

On the contrary, keep them captured, hidden from the light

I do beg you, hear my pleading sound

I long to keep them earthly bound


Suddenly, with divine power, I forged to conceal

White came thundering to their earthly appeal

I petitioned my many to keep them deceived

However, Whites supreme light was not what I perceived


Help me, help me, I’m spiraling down

They’re drinking from White, consuming its crown

Intoxicated by light, liberates them from blacks power

Now I whimper around, now destined for my last hour
