Mephistopheles with sheet music

.

every word tumbled off

his biforcated tongue

was exaggeration

diminished reason

justification

grand delusion

half truths

folded gently

into lies

melted pretty please

bullshit buttered

sweet peas

conspiracy theories

baked into

blackbird pie

melodic compositions

leaving a dense fog

of fetid floating

musical notes

breath

Faustian

devil in the details

leading his trusting musician

to snap

an unwilling head

in revulsion

when the truth emerged bloody

before burning eyes
