The Atheist and the Satanist
Were standing toe to toe.
‘Twas the hallowed evening
When the devils do their show;
One there couldn’t grasp it,
The other wouldn’t let it go.
Said the Satanist to the Atheist
“I can scare you from your shoes;
I can bring forth all the nasties
With blood and gore and ooze;
I can pile them up in front of you,
If you even flinch, you lose.”
The Atheist sighed and looked most sad
“I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again:
There is no need for your deathly lot
To ride screaming through the glen:
There’s a surplus of evil in this world,
Already in the mind of men.
But all that being said and done,
I don’t mind the ghoulish rally.
It’s amusing on a quiet night
When there’s not a lot on telly
And, just between the two of us,
I have a passion for green jelly."
