11-22 Masquerading

In reading my Bible each morning, a few days ago I came upon this fascinating verse, noticed the metrics, which spawned this one:


Satan himself masquerades

As an angel of light, *


Flaunting a golden charade,

To lure what’s shady, as bright.


It takes a discerning eye

To spot luminous sin—


He’s crafty, cunning and sly,

To gloss our darkness within,


And spell what is dark as light.

* 2 Cor. 11:14
