Iíve been asked speak to you my friends
on behalf of the gentleman sitting here
donít be misled by his horned head
stay calm, there is nothing to fear.
Beelzebub has felt your wrath
and wants to have his say
he asked that as a poet divine
I speak for him today.
He says that crime is not his fault
it wasnít his invention
he says being prince of the dark
was not his first intention.
He wanted to create a place
where sinful pleasures rule
like chocolate cake and whipping cream
and pans of blueberry fool.
His goal was to put together
all the things we didnít need
the things that were considered
as gluttony or greed.
But things got out of hand he says
then went from bad to worse
and so heís asked I plead his case
right here in this little verse.
He asks that you forgive him
and grant him immunity
allow him to find a home
in your little community.
He promises to be good as he can
and do penance here on earth
Heíll fight evil every chance he gets
to prove to you his worth.
And in conclusion, the Devil says
one promise to you heíll make
if you grant him leniency
heíll grant you Devilís Food Cake!
