“Angels On Our Shoulders”
by Thadd Presley
In the beginning he had two:
One told him good things
and the other spoke untrue.
He grew up with them by his side.
One told him how to be a friend,
the other how to steal and lie.
Then one day, one of his angels fell
He didn’t understand what happened,
but the other laughed, “’cause you’re in hell.”
“The Angel can’t come here, although she had tried
Throughout your life, you were told the truth,
but it’s all to late, now that you’ve died.”
