Supernatural Friday: What the Hell Are Demons Anyway?

Check out an original poem of mine, copyrighted. Don't take the poem, but do share the link with friends and fiends!

What the Hell Are Demons Anyway?
Pamela K. Kinney

Demonic, devil, dem…what the heck!
It’s all the same,
Or is it?
Is it about demons?
Or devils?
So many decisions
So many names and translations.
Daemon or fiend?
Dark angel or fallen angel.
Unclean spirit or diamond?
Ancient Greek word daim┼Źn denotes a spirit or divine power,
No connotations of evil or malevolence.
But with Lucifer and Satan comes pure evilness
Demons are the new black.
Or red, with horns and pitchforks!
Whatever you think,
Those bad boys and girls are here
To terrorize us,
Give us nightmares,
And we’re not talking about horses here!
Demons, devil, fallen angel,
It’s all on the tip of the tongue
And maybe the stuff of Hell.

You can read devil or demon stories in Southern Haunts: Devils in the Darkness, that includes a short story of mine about a demon dog, both in print and Kindle. Find it also at and Books A Million.
