11-22 Masquerading

In reading my Bible each morning, a few days ago I came upon this fascinating verse, noticed the metrics, which spawned this one:

Masquerading

Satan himself masquerades

As an angel of light, *

 

Flaunting a golden charade,

To lure what’s shady, as bright.

 

It takes a discerning eye

To spot luminous sin—

 

He’s crafty, cunning and sly,

To gloss our darkness within,

 

And spell what is dark as light.

* 2 Cor. 11:14
