How The Devil Fell

The devil sat high in her hellish throne
Her whip lashing, heart cold as stone
Until one day the doors of hell burst wide
And all the demons rushed to hide
An angel stood basking in holy light
That sent hellhounds into eternal fright
Soon enough the devil's heart unfroze
And from her firey throne she rose
Surrendered to this angel's charm
Thinking she could do no harm
The devil let herself fall so fast
For an angel, thinking it'll last
When the angel had her way
It was clear she wouldn't stay
She left, the devil's heart shattered
Its millions of pieces scattered...
The devil did cry a thousand tears
Bitter through infinite eternities
By now if you couldn't tell
This is the tale of how the devil fell.
