As I was waitin’ for the bus

As I was waitin’ for the bus
I met Satan and he just liked me
this perplexed me I just didn’t get he
really seemed to dig me so as my eyes swerve
into the rain and people begin to refrain
from walking right where the tires squirt I finally worked
up my nerve to inquire for
the cause of this unexpected fondness
the prince of darkness seemed to put on this dumbest
pathetic depressed kid so I said this:
“Excuse me Mr. Lucifer but what do you do this for?
why do you seem to hide in my dreams
delighting in themes worked up by my mind’s rubble?”
he just smiled and chuckled; “Please call me Bob, cool?”
and I saw drops drop smooth from his drop-dead due
and just then he’d not seem like one of the eldest
theological entities been walking for centuries
and he had his hair kinda’ like Elvis
probably to cover up his bent and creased
horns protruding through him
“Ok Bob” I spake up

with a certain amount of uneasiness since this WAS his greasiness

“But you still didn’t answer my query why you’re on my back then? It’s eerie…”

he glared at me the bemusement seemed to resign
I’d stare and see that fluids would seethe in his eyes
I was scared but didn’t flee or leave from his sight
I cared too much to be stupid so I let him speak up his mind
“Badness! I never tormented you or wanted your soul
‘there shall be a spawn of Satan but I’ve never had kids
nor clever magic so I don’t have tricks
to eager the time or make it move its rump on a whole”
he paused then to fold his collar up to his neck
I didn’t know what would be next or what to expect
but he’d just scuff and reflect
“You see the reason I follow you is because I’m fond of you
it’s not to plunder you nor because you’re phenomenal
you never wanted to do anything particularly wrong or crude
it’s true we’re not so unlike ol’ Bob and you…”
I’d then get we were the same mess the weird n’ me
I’d stare and see the resemblance with clarity
so as I was waiting for the bus
I met Satan and he was just like me…
