The Devil’s in the Details

the devil’s in the details,

you devious debutante.

your dark dealings,

brought to light,

dare to damage

your position.

daunting as it seems,

this dreadful day

draws drearily

towards a disappointing end.

dapper demagogues declare

their distaste for such


desperate to distinguish themselves.

don’t despair,

you dutifully upheld

your end against those disgruntled


dig in,

dictate what determines decisive victory.

decimate the dolorous masses

who view you with such derision.

you devious debutante,

the devil’s in the details.
