The Prophecy By Brian Koester

The Prophecy By Brian Koester

The demon perched on the child’s chest

And whispered doom into his ear.

A shriek! then sobs and no more rest:

The demon perched on the child’s chest

In pitch dark. With a hellish zest

Now laughing, relishing the fear,

The demon perched on the child’s chest

And whispered doom into his ear.
