In and out the devil’s maypole.

Just playing about with nursery rhymes and words.

In and out the deathly shadows,
In and out the deathly shadows,
In and out the deathly shadows,
the devil is your master.

Tippy tappy tap tap, he shall take your soul,
Tippy tappy tap tap, he’ll make that fire glow,
Tippy tappy tap tap,  and pain is all you’ll know.

In and out the chilling shadows,
In and out the chilling shadows,
In and out the chilling shadows,
He shall be your master.

Tippy tappy tap tap, the pain will make you scream,
Tippy tappy tap tap, you’ll lick his fingers clean.
Tippy tappy tap tap, you’ll always know he’s been.

In and out the devil’s maypole,
In and out the devil’s maypole,
In and out the devil’s maypole,
The devil is my master.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!

  1. Great poem, really enjoyed it, but I do have one issue with it, you said at the beginning that you were playing with nursery words, and nursery means that you cure people here….there is death everywhere!

    1. ha ha Charly, nursery in the UK means children…childrens rhymes…the original rhyme is…in and out the dusky bluebells…however, the rhyme was originally created in response to the plague and refers to the way it spread with such ease, soooo yeah it kinda is about death lol
