Evil personified

AKA Drack Dermore (Let the darkness begin)

So you think you know me,
I am a many faceted dream.
A thought before you scream,
The spider crawling in your head.

The porcupine that needs a huge,
The venom in your drinking cup.
The one the devil screams about,
If you still have your self-centred

I still wear the devil's skin,
It darkens the deepest void.
Waking up what lives within,
Scaring the ones that live without.

So if you're acting ghoulish,
When we meet,
somewhere down the road,
Best to step aside.

For I am the spawn of time,
The stench of rotting flesh.
Known as little Tommy toad,
And I'm still in a killing mode.

A very different poem from your usual fare, but a good one nonetheless

Well! An intriguing poem Alan, and does the porcupine need a hug as well? Nice one.
