A mask on the wall

devil mask
Mask on the bathroom wall of artist Anado McLauchlin, La Cieneguita, Guanajuato, México
 


A mask on the wall of the bath
Represents such unholy wrath
That bathers do quake,
And shiver and shake,
While viewing the mask in the bath.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:105, King James Version
 


Lady of the Lamp,
as the darkness closes in,
guide my feet and heart.

May I never stray,
Mary of the Menorah,
as you light my way.
