Eden: A Poem

As I drifted with a serpent's sight

among the decadent groves of Empyrean,

I came across a small sign that read

May only the holy reside within.

And I, seeing the irony in such,

did look toward the chthonic ocean

and whistled to my far off friends

who soon emerged as four horsemen.

We hellish fiends were in truth,

upon entering, the most upstanding

of all residents that dwelled inside due to

the constant oppression of religious demandings.

We marched, a force of five,

liberating each poor soul

with fires of free will from the

ignorance imposed by their god for control.

With new found wisdom of the world,

They too now followed us back,

forming a beacon of honesty and integrity

Together in the endless black.
