The Devil's mother has something to say.
|Oh, you’ve grown so big.
You command quite a fleet.
My expectations, they’re met,
Though they weren’t hard to meet.
Your lifestyle may be hard to swallow,
But I don’t judge who you persuade to follow.
I only know that I’m your mother.
I love you like I love no other.
“I love you” may be hard to hear:
I fear it falls on a deafly ear.
“I love you” isn’t hard to say
For a child’s mother, every day.
“I love you” is all I know.
With it, you did learn, and grow.
For wickedness inflicted,
For torment you’ve sewn,
For the evil you foster
As if it’s your own,
I love you, my son. I always will,
Even if it’s me you kill.
