When The Devil Leads Us Home And Yells Surprise 

By Nikki Wallschlaeger

Is that your house he asked
This used to be my house I said
 
But those are not your people
So that can’t be your house
 
But it is my house I said
I had some people maybe a few
 
Even though those are not your people
Even though they don’t look like you
 
I had to live somewhere I said
This is the house where I lived
 
But where are your people he said
 
My people live in a different house
They don’t care to know about me
 
If you’re the devil
Why are you asking me questions
 
The devil said since the house
You had to live in is gone
I thought you’d be happy
 
It sure is a hot day I said
Of course it is said the devil
Why do you think I work in town
