The personification of a widespread “spiritual” phenomenon.
Deception wears a sickly smile
as he takes you by the hand
leading to his temple of delusion
Articulate, attractive, entertaining
he promises an end to your confusion
Arguments so plausible as he spins
his web of lies,
to catch you unawares
as you view his ‘paradise’
Cloak of ‘light’ his favoured garb
pretense his practiced art,
a mask to hide his true design
manipulation of the heart.
Disarming, so charming,
defenses coming down.
Get you believing – deadly strategy.
His paths with victims strewn
Ancient truth must rise within
to overcome that plan
If his ‘truth’ accords not with
the Word, there is no light in him.
That Word – a light to show our path,
a lamp to guide our feet -
to keep us from his devious ways,
to shield us from deceit
