The One not Taken

A lament by Lord Grimthorn

Two humans diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not kill them both
and be one hunter, long I stood
and looked down my road as far as I could
to where I shot one down in the undergrowth.

Then attempted the other, as just as fair,
and perhaps the better aim
because he sought Christ and His righteousness
above all earthly care.

But that morning he chose his way
though I chased in bloody leaves my feet had trodden black.
Oh, I kept longing the one for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if he should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two humans diverged in a yellow wood, and I --
I could only destroy the one less satisfied,
and that has made me all the bitter.

Researching Them

For our efforts to be effective we must learn what drives these mangy human creatures. The best way to lure them into destruction is to research their daily lives. Observe your subjects in their natural habitats. Learn what they do to achieve happiness. What are their desires? What can you anticipate from their past decisions? Learn what makes them tick. We can’t read their minds, but we can learn what they think about the Enemy by observing their daily lives. Ultimately, learning what they believe about Him is essential in their destruction. Keeping the human maggots away from His life changing power is our primary goal. By studying each part of their lives we will have a better grasp of how their minds work and what tactics we should use to lead them to darkness, or deeper into it.

The devil's advocate,

-Lord Grimthorn
