PLATEAU GAZETTE-SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1883.
Men don't believe in a Devil now, as their
fathers used to do;
They have forced the door of the broadest
creed, to let His Majesty through.
There isn't a print of his cloven foot or a fiery
dart from his bow
To be found in earth or air to-day, for the
world lias voted so.
But who is mixing the fatal draught that
palsies heart and brain,
And loads the bier of each passing year ten
hundred thousand slain P
Who blights the bloom of the land to-day with
the fiery breath of hell,
If the l(-vil isn't and never wasP Won't
somebody rise and tell P
Who dogs the step of the toting saint and digs
the pits for his feet?
Whosows the tares in the field of time wherever
God sows his wheat P
The Devil is voted not to be, and, of course,
the thing is true;
But who is doing this kind of work the Devil
alone should doP
We are told he docs not go about as a roaring
But whom shall we hold responsible for the
To be heard in home, in church and state, to
the earth's rt mot s' bound,
If the Devil by u unanimous vote is nowhere
to be found P
Won't somebody step to the front forthwith,
and make their bow aud show
How the frauds and the crimes of a single day
spring up P We want to know.
The jl'vii was fairly voted out, and, of course
the Devil's gone;
But simple people would like to know who
carries his business on.
