The Angel’s Wings

who clipped the angel’s wings
that he would forever be
the guardian
of this thing called man?

“not I” said the god on high
“my angels fly from such base things,
go ask the devil
for he is man’s advocate”

when asked, the devil smiled
and pointed to the man
“therein lies he who did the deed…
for man himself holds the sway
over gods and angels, and yes…

…devils too”
