The Boast of Aaron

Aaron Maynor, 12th Grade, South Brunswick High School

Twas I, one who has been chosen to be the crossbreed of the Egg Goddess and Satan.

Was I who was born in slums of the purgatory in Greensboro,

And it was I who made boon companionship with my seed givers demons.

Twas those demons who attempted to slay my juvenile core.

Now, those demon’s guillotined head lay in my lap

While the soulless corpse of the slayed hang high in the great hall of the mind of thou.

I am the voice of the ones with no voice,

And I exist to the despairing as hope.

Let me not be remembered a hero,

Rather I am a friend.
