Read Poem: Wish for Evil, by Patrick “Sully” Sullivan

A quiet horror hides a dark sense of humor
Knock, knock whose there? Bloody Mary.
Bloody Mary who? Mary in the mirror!

There are angels and devils, soil and shovels
Saved, to be saved
There are headstones and halos, wings and horns
The risen, depraved

While you pray to God I wish for evil for you

People of the lie deny their darkness
Hark! Hark! The herald angels sing
Angels sing for whom? Mary in the manger!

No room in your INN, or in your heart
Diabolists
Bring Black Swans and bile, real remorse
Scares your wits

While you pray to God I wish for evil for you

Purgatory helps you find your guilt
Before you go to heaven or to hell
I wish you evil on a black draped stage
A brush with death, a limb that’s maimed
An axe that misses your neck
Better than a corpse that forgets

Fumbling regrets, a life of lots
Fumbling regrets, a life of lots

Mary’s chopping block!
Mary’s chopping block!
Mary’s chopping block!
Mary’s chopping block!

While you pray to God I wish for evil for you
