Pat Conover: Sharing the Journey
The Devil Wore a Crucifix

Kirkstall Abbey (Leeds) by tricky

The devil wore a crucifix.
"The Christians they are right,"
the Devil said, "so let us burn a heretic tonight."
A heretic tonight.

A lily or a swastika,
a shamrock or a star,
the Devil he can wear them all no matter what they are.
No matter what they are.

In red or blue or khaki,
in green or black and tan,
The Devil is a patriot, a proper party man.
A proper party man.

He'll beat a drum in China.
He'll beat it in the West.
He'll beat a drum for anyone, a Holy War is best.
A Holy War is best.
