Not a knee slapper, but...

Some may say I am the devil,

Of Jersey vintage living in the barrens,

Drinking water of the brackish variety,

Eating only road kill & the occasional hiker,

Though sometimes I may even get a tasty young biker…


But really I am an angel with wings,

Yes that is the me I see in the mirror,

I really do know of God & his angels as kings,

Sometimes they even of me sing…


Rambling through the Pine Barrens,

None are there, in that place, cattle barons,

Through those old pines I do jump from tree to tree,

I never travel on the ground, after all I got wings,

What’s the sense with them attached to my back,

To walk upright like a man, instead I do float,

In the upper limbs, out of reach of man, near the sky so black…

If you were a Jersey Devil you'd be over-paid and under-productive like the rest of those so-called athletes.

I think the truth is incredibly clear in this ... each of us is both a devil and an angel. Personally, I believe that (based on your write) you are prone to the devilish. lol

God bless you,

Hmmmnnn, perhaps a blue angel with horns or the Jersey devil with wings...

Good question. Devil or Angel? Sounds like and old song, but then again so are we all. Old that is. In my mirror, I'm an angel too, but my mirror sometimes lies. Keep up the good work Dangel, (you're a lot more angle than Devil) Thanks Dick
