The Devil made me do it!
Here is our fight:
licking the blood of innocent babies.
Sightless who can no longer see; living in darkness;
are we boys or girls they question, animals or human.
Yet, they want all to follow, the blind leading
as they dance with the devil!
Dance the masquerade
The pretense of joy —Oh Boy!
Tomorrow; the tears

My sojourn day by day, as time goes by, noticing that black is white and white, is now black. Life is altered, modified, and turned from winter to spring in lightning speed. Exchange can be good but just when I think I heard it all, the next day I am blown away by another adverse enlightenment.
My only reaction is to disregard, resist and dare to say NO!
The devil can cheer
near our habits, since he is
not inside our will!
My Haiku above a rephrase of Padre Pio’s quote below:
“healthy sign if the devil shouts and roars around your conscience since this shows that he is not inside your will.”
― Padre Pio
Today’s word prompt “Doppelganger” no doubt means different conclusions to different people.
Immediately when I realized what the word meant, (had to look it up) I was reminded of the time I had the pleasure of entertaining a well-known exorcist for dinner at my home many years ago.
Bishop Robert McKenna born in 1927 – 2015. You will find
by searching his name much information about his gift of exorcism. Bishop McKenna using Latin, the official language of the Church begins the ritual of exorcism. Bishop McKenna begs God through prayer to free the demon-haunted person.
Getting back to my story when he was a guest in my home, he told me about one of the times when he was effecting an exorcism the sufferer, a man, actually walked out of his body, in other words, the person was standing while Bishop looked at him and suddenly there were two of them, exactly alike. The second one just walked out of the original person and stepped away about 5 feet from the man, then stepped back into him.
Now that in my mind was what I would call a “DOPPELGANGER.” Also in many real-life stories, a real cliffhanger ending.
