A demon thrives from the ancient of times,
Lighting his way to the present.
Mesmerizing all who are brought to dwell
Upon his twisted barbaric perceptions.
Looking towards the east, this evil one seeks
A creed of his venomous deeds;
Systematically rising are his teachings of hell,
Like the sun upon the open sea.
He requires the death of all who fail
In the compulsion of what he preaches;
Many misled from his heretical spell
As he deceives in the name of his king.
And if you refuse his spoon fed news
Your death with certainly follow;
A slit to your throat
With blunt knife strokes;
Into your grave
As a martyr.
