Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal
Screaming sounds from Satan’s wrath
Revelations sing to the aftermath
Music begs for the Devil’s kiss
While wandering deep into the abyss
On the edge of tranquil spirits
Calls on rage to what befits
Hell is swelling while heaven shrinks
Witch’s brew for savory drinks
Music filters into quiet dreams
Heavy rousting for all it seems
Beauty turns a different color
Sparkling reds stripped naked to duller
Blood runs freely as they come to fight
Adrenalin rushes on to take flight
Music gets inside and stirs up the warrior
Hail to the chief, the mighty conqueror
If the pen is mightier than the sword
Then how does heavy metal rank?
