A Devil Lives in New Jersey…


His hooves they do prance,

Along the forgotten paths,

Of the pinelands,

Where he does live out his wrath…


His mother did damn him,

To roam the forests of pine,

Invoking fear in a child’s spine,

Shiver do they, this creature part equine…


Fear even I do have,

To go into the barrens,

At night when the devil does prowl,

No amount of light does scare him off,

His hunger for meat of the human kind,

His only desire, he will eat it raw, devouring your mind…


Animals do all hide in terror,

They know this creature, make no error,

He has been around these parts,

Since its own dawn of birth,

Set apart from humans, he does fear nothing…


Is this just a Halloween poem?

Or is the devil real, do we know em’?

The pineys do know of his presence,

It makes them quite tense,

Fear of the unknown certainly does make sense…

I've been afraid of the Jersey Devil since I first learned of "it". Thanks for adding to that chill. I love it :-)

"fear of the unknown certainly does make sense" sigh... Ed, just when I thought it was safe to settle in, get a little smirky at your scary but inviting story, you Blam me with this line, which once again sent my eager mind into so many directions, it made one thought impossible. One right after another, as I've just been reading you, I'm hit with your depths... your poetic wisdom... carefully blended inside seemingly innocent, straightforward poetry. You are evolving, even as you still and hopefully always will, churn out your infectious hilarity! I'm a willing reader, indeed! katy xox.

Ah, Ed, you chill and thrill! I remember the Pineys while growing up - they seemed dark and forbidding at times, and adventuresome and endless at times. Good write! I enjoyed it very much.

Let this be a lesson to all who venture its borders: Don't swim in, nor drink the water in New Jersey.
