A Woman's Battle Over Creation

In my culture, woman wins every time.  Keeping in mind the title of this verse, let us know and compose the story of prose that many called a Rose....There is a story told in la cultura Salvadorena passed down throughout generation from past generations that woman and Lucifer once met and battled over a knot.  Yes, a knot...if you can believe that.  Woman was minding her own business, busy as can be with her daily life when Lucifer bored with Heaven and Earth decided to drop by uninvited.  If you know anything about our culture, then you know why woman assumed he was family and not a foe.  He saw her sewing and said that he could do it better and faster.  Her way was too tedious and it just took too long.  Woman handed him a needle and the thread.  She laughed as he committed the same mistakes she once made as a child over and over again.  Lucifer cursed and beat the dammed fabric and thread and even gnawed on it for good measure but that didn't seem to help.  He just grew angrier. Eventually, he gave up.  He threw woman the thread, said, "Damned you.." and left.
In our culture, Lucifer ( the devil) is humorous when combined with the wit of a woman.  Her wit will always outdo him.  She is left laughing while he leaves frustrated and unfulfilled.  To some he is a trickster that always wins.  To others he is a like a lawyer with a contract filled with traps.  To give the devil his due is different according to cultures.  It is nice to know that because of my culture and upbringing, all I have to due  is be myself.  That way, I will always laugh first and last.  Are you still wondering over the knot and battle?  So is the Lucifer that is reading this:)


That is the introduction to my Poem:

The Devil To Pay


The Devil to Pay 
But who is to Charge

The Devil left to Pay
Resting asure that He would Charge

Only the Devil?
Only the Devil Left?
Then lonely he charged

No

He never charged Lonely
Lonely had Paid
And Lonely never charged

Lonely was Free
No need to Pay 
No need to Charge

So then the Pleasures?
Only when Lonely leaves
and Pain never arrives

Pain?

Ah, The Devil to have liveD
The Devil to have Paid
And Lucifer to smile

And God?


That’s why Lucifer smiled…
