A short monologue from a demon's perspective.

There are notions of good and evil, biases of the human perspective, and a touch of satire.

eople make a big fuss about good and evil. It'simportant to them. It needs to exist. It puts the world in somesort of cosmic struggle where people's morals and actions haveconsequence. I suppose it makes sense. People don't just wanttheir actions to matter, they want themselves to matter. Beingborn just to shit out kids and eventually feed worms isn't pretty,but the truth never is.I guess it's kind of funny that I call their bluff. After all,I'm one of the very things they created.

Throughurban legend and perverse lyrics, my name got out there, buteven before I was known, I had my hands in history. I madedeals with Alexander of Macedonia and Franklin D. Roosevelt.Then more recently, there's the deal with you.People want a lot of things. People need very few. Ican only give them what they want, so that they may give mewhat I need.
